My mom has been busy, as usual. She’s been turning old t-shirts into yarn and crocheting rugs. I’ve been toying with doing something similar with some old pants, we only have a few old t-shirts, but I didn’t know exactly how I wanted to tackle it until now.
I searched YouTube for examples of how to make continuous t-shirt yarn and how to change colors without huge knots. I don’t know if this is the way my mom did it, but this is what I’m planning on doing. It looks like the same process will work with old khakis and jeans, so I’m going to try my hand at an old pants rug as soon as I finish a couple other projects. Sadly, all I have is the khakis and jeans, so I don’t have different colors to work with. Maybe I should play with dying some, too?
Pictured is the beautiful rug Mom made for me. Now I just need to go pick it up.
