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.

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.

I love this rug and that the t-shirt yarn will keep is soft and nice for your feet. With the big yarn and size 15mm crochet hook, this rug will be quick to whip up. The tutorial is also in both English and Spanish. I can’t wait to create one for my apartment.

What could be a better product to put your knitting and crochet supplies in than a basket you have crocheted yourself from t-shirt yarn? Instead of buying expensive containers, put your crafting knowledge to use and create this basket to help you get organized. The tutorial has both a written pattern and a video to help you create your own basket.

I love this statement necklace which is chunky without being overbearing. I can’t imagine this necklace taking more than half and hour to make and the necklace would make an excellent gift. I may have to keep this project in mind for the holiday season.
