  1. I have never heard of t-shirt yarn, but I just clicked over to the tutorial you linked to and I am SO excited to make some!! What a great way to reuse them - I wish I'd known about this idea when I cut all the motifs off my t-shirts and made them into a blanket, because I could have used the bottom portions to make yarn. At least I'll be able to do it in the future. Thanks so much for sharing!
