We interrupt Refashion Runway Season Five to bring you this special announcement:
If you been inspired by the creative and talented designers from Refashion Runway and would like to try some refashioning yourself, but you’re not sure where to start, making t-shirt yarn might be just the ticket.
Instead of throwing away all those old, unwanted t-shirts, turn them into yarn. It’s easy, it’s fast, it’s fun and it’s one more way to join the zero-waste movement. Use t-shirt yarn just like you would any other yarn — you can crochet, knit, make rugs, macrame, make pompoms, wall hangings or even make some tassels with it. If you don’t have any old t-shirts at home, check out your local thrift shop — there are mountains of t-shirts hanging around, in every color, just begging to be used and kept out of the landfills.
