This tutorial first appeared first appeared on my old blog, and has been edited in this post. I am reposting as it shows how to make your own t-shirt yarn, which you can use to make my Crochet Club bag. If you ever played the 'Mintie Wrapper' game as a child (I think it might be an Australian thing!) you will have an idea of how to do it!
Cut strips of jersey cotton (stretchy tshirt material) but leave about an inch at the end, then cut back in the opposite direction. These were some baby blankets I loved, but didn't think I would use again!
Cutting like this creates a continuous thread. You don't need to just use stretchy material, but it does make it a bit easier to use.
