What I wanted to do was make my own yarn out of old shirts and the like. I think I was inspired by tshirt yarn but also I like the idea of squeezing a little more like out of these old fabrics.
To begin with, I’ve cut up an old quilt cover and matching pillowcases. This took quite some time and resulted in an achey hand and a great big ball of Orange and yellow rag yarn (there may be a better name for it?).
I’ve started to crochet this into a basket that I will post pictures of later this week. It’s going quite well. The fabric is fraying a little as I crochet but this was something I expected 🙂
Right best get back to it 🙂
