Today I thought I’d clean up the sewing room. Its a never ending trial.

In the process I came across these:

t-shirt as yarn

What I had done was take some cotton t-shirts, the kind without seams on the side. (actually went hunting for the colors I wanted at goodwill) Then cut them up in strips about a half inch wide, pulled to curl them up, then lost the “thread” of what to do with them. Today, instead of actually emptying out the sewing room as planned, I thought to make a little throw rug or something. So this is how it went.

I love the colors and texture, but it now means finding the t-shirts I began with and more cutting as I’ve used up that small stash.
