T-shirt yarn, also known as “tarn”, is a great eco-friendly product that is perfect for lots of DIY craft projects including rag rugs, scarves, or fun woven bracelets.
It has a nice slightly stretchy quality, and is very easy and inexpensive to make yourself. This video will show you how to make long continuous pieces of t-shirt yarn to minimize the knots and connections in your craft projects.
When you’ve finished watching this one, be sure to watch this video to see how to connect two ends of t-shirt yarn together and how to make woven t-shirt bracelets, or see my other DIY t-shirt yarn + chain bracelet tutorial!
Another great option is a nice rotary cutter used with a straight edge for the first part of the cutting. You’ll get nice smooth cuts with ease, and the round blade glides along the ruler and cuts through several layers of fabric easily. It’s also really comfortable to work with and a little faster if you plan on cutting lots of fabric!
