Here’s a fun and simple project to do with the kids that yields very pretty results–grab some yarn, balloons and glue, and get snowballing!
Show off your favorite yarn craft with this easy and fun yarn busting project. Give these fun little ornaments as a gift to your favorite stitcher or use them as gift toppers. I’m thinking about making some into gift toppers with the leftover yarn I used to make this year’s gifts. That way, my family members have a little hint about what to expect inside their gifts, and it lets them know how it’s made!
I have too many t-shirts. My t-shirt drawer over flows with a multitude of colors and baggy fits that I never actually find time or the occasion to wear. My mom has constantly over the years asked me to toss some of these shirts out to create space for clothes that might actually see the light of day. Unfortunately for my dresser, I’m much to sentimental and practical to just toss out a t-shirt. Instead of wasting these memories and fabric I’ve been on the search for something to do and create with my old t-shirts. One craft trend that has emerged and has given my old t-shirts a new purpose and a new life is t-shirt yarn. There’s a number of options for this new medium of yarn and I’m excited by the possibilities I have found so far.
T-Shirt Market Bag – Think Crafts
This cute bag is great for your local farmer’s market and great for re-purposing an old t-shirt. The project only takes four different materials and looks like a fun and easy project to whip up. The t-shirt yarn makes for a perfect material for this project as it will stretch to fit your items.
