Chris had a bunch of tshirts to give away, so I thought I would try to make one of those fun necklaces I always see on Etsy. Making the yarn was SO easy. I just followed this tutorial and it took maybe 5 minutes. The result isn't too fancy, as you can see, but it does provide nice handles for Cam.
But I warn you, it is addictive. I was at Value Village the other day and saw this nice purple T shirt (for some college dorm or something) so I picked it up and made another.
(Same shirt - different day!) This one had no seams up the sides and so it made one long tube, which I really liked. I also like the colour! And it is nice and snuggly. However, the ones on Etsy are much more polished-looking, or at least they take better photos. Here are a few:
my favourite, from foulardthreads (check this shop, I LOVE it!)
Looking at these, maybe I will find a slightly lighter purple and wind it in to make it a little more substantial. Or maybe I should just wind it a little more artfully. Who knows? I tell ya, these are fun. Guess what everyone is getting this Christmas?? :)
