Huh  How do you make the t-shirt yarn?  I have several of my husband's t-shirts saved to makes some with, but I don't know how.  Thanks!
All you have to do is cut an on going strip of fabric off the T-Shirt... kind of like a spiral off the trunk of the shirt. its better if you use seamless shirts

 Huh  So if I were really careful, I could theoretically cut in a spiral and have a continuous length of yarn as long as the t-shirt was...?

 Wink  You da best! (but you already knew that!  Wink)  I'll take a peek at the site.  With the size of my husband-hence the t-shirts he gave me-I'll be able to crochet a rug with the yarn made from them for everyone on Craftster!   Tongue  (Hee-hee!)

Inside a dog it's too dark to read.

I made t-shirt yarn in that general way, but instead of scissors I used my rotary cutter and ruler (from quilting) and was able to get the strips cut really quickly.
