Fabric Yarn

There are a lot of tutorials out there that show you how to make yarn out of plastic bags and t-shirts. I’ve been wanting to do something similar for a while, but making enough plarn seemed like it would take a while, and I don’t have enough old t-shirts to cut up.

Luckily I remembered I had these old sheets from my husband’s bachelor days. Below is a picture of the sheet and parts of the bed skirt each cut into one continuous piece of “yarn”.

Bed sheet cut into strips to make yarn

The strips were cut into approximately 2 inch wide strips

And here is a picture of the “yarn” rolled up neatly.

I don’t have finished project made from this yet, but I do have something in mind. I’ll be sure to post pictures when it’s done.
I’m also in the process of making a bolero with this yarn. We’ll see how it turns out.
