DIY: Make your own t-shirt yarn

Every year, lots of people make new year resolutions and lots of them have resolutions around sustainability and organizing.

So this DIY is here to help with both of those! Today I’ll explain how to make t-shirt yarn or textile yarn out of an old t-shirt.

I’ll explain everything in this video down below!

I mostly use this yarn to make baskets. Next week, I’ll explain how to make these baskets. So if you make this yarn this week, you have it ready for the pattern next week.

So with these tutorials, you have organized (because you have 1 less t-shirt) and you can organize some more (because you have a basket)! And because this t-shirt gets reused instead of ending up in landfill, you are being sustainable. So that’s a great way to start the year 🙂
