I used the fabric yarn I made a while ago to make an oval-shaped basket.
That dark part in the middle? That’s an entire bed-skirt. The rest of it? That’s an entire double bed sheet. Makes me wonder how much fiber goes into one ball of yarn.
I might have gotten another row in with the 2 pillow cases. I only keep my socks in it though, so I don’t need anything deeper.
On a different note:
I started putting my blanket squares together. Finally. Here’s where I am so far.
And no, those ends are not weaved in yet. I hate weaving in ends, and I always leave it for last. Maybe I can convince my mom to do it for me when she comes to visit? 😉
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”.
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.
