I’m beyond excited about a DIY statement piece necklace that I made for FREE! Yes, FREE!!!! All I used was scissors, a t-shirt my husband didn’t want anymore, a needle and thread. I made the statement piece necklace from t-shirt yarn so in this post I will show you how to make T-shirt yarn. Once you have t-shirt yarn the possibilities are endless. You can make so many different things with it and its free or cheap. Just tell your friends and family to give you any of their unwanted t-shirts:-)
If your t-shirt has any graphics on it that you don’t want on the yarn just cut below it to separate that portion of the shirt from the rest. You will be left with a “tube” that will become your t-shirt yarn.
Lay the tube flat, pick a starting point and cut up and parallel to the opening. I chose to make my strip about 1 1/2 inches wide to ensure that my yarn will be thick enough to craft with.
Continue to cut parallel until you run out of t-shirt.
Lastly, pull the strip taut to encourage it to roll over on to itself and not fray.
Easy enough right?!?! Stay tuned for the statement piece necklace. Enjoy!
