I love navy and white. It’s so crisp and summery. I was cleaning out my drawers and found a navy blue t-shirt that had barely been worn. It wasn’t a fashion t-shirt but one of those logo t-shirts that you would wear to paint the house. The redeeming quality about this t-shirt was that it was the perfect shade of navy blue.
To make t-shirt yarn, you cut one long continuous strip going around and around the bottom of the shirt. I drew a little diagram above.
Here’s what you end up with – t-shirt yarn. You can knit or crochet with it or do just about anything you would do with yarn or ribbon.

For step-by-step instructions, here’s a great tutorial that I found on how to cut t-shirt yarn [above].
Once you have your strip, start pinning it to our t-shirt in whatever design you want. I chose rosettes in a continuous swirly pattern. I hand stitched the rosettes into place and then machine stitched the entire ribbon down.
