This is soooo GOOD! I'm gonna try this out. I have tried before, but then with sissors, going round as if ur peeling an apple. Very time consuming.

I can't believe you 2 have been cutting t-shirt yarn that way, and still want to try! I would go insane if I was going that long apple peeling way!

I think when I was doing it I cut from both sides and didn't cut all the way through. So I cut from left to right, but not the last inch, and then the next row I moved up and cut right to left, but not the last inch. At the end I just had to snip a few little parts. I still can't wrap my head around the way you showed, I think I would have to actually sit down to do it.  Do you pull yours so it gets all curled up and yarn like or do you use it flat?

I roll it flat, but pull as I'm crocheting so it rolls up then.

yep--it was like peeling a BIG old apple...so boring and time consuming! Cheesy

I have a whole pile of t-shirts that I kept avoiding or was saving for a day when I could just sit in front of the tv and cut....this tutorial and my rotary cutter will be busy soon...I sometimes think I am stupid-smart, ya know? Cheesy

Thank you for the tut Pixival!!  I want to cut squares from the fronts to make a quilt, but wanted to use the leftovers for rag rugs.  =]  do you tie ends together or is there another method you use?  I was just visiting my sister who cuts up sheets for crocheting into rugs...her joining would work here, I think.  Thanks!

If you're using shorter pieces (from the sleeves or something) I love to join them by snipping a small hole an inch or so from the end of each piece you are joining. Put the holey end of Piece A through the hole you snipped in Piece B. Then take the non-holey end of Piece A and put it through the hole of Piece A and pull all the way through (since you're pulling it through its whole length, this join is obviously suited to shorter pieces). You effectively make a little knot that can't come undone and is not very bulky, with no loose ends flapping.

I've posted some of your questions and answers to the front post. I will continue to do so whenever anyone has a question! As soon as I get my mom over here again, I'll post pics of the joining method MareMare is talking about to the first post.

Great tutorial! You make it look sooooo easy!  The rag rug in the picture is really awesome ( I can vouch for that, as I am pixieval's mom ! ) Now I need to get busy and empty out the t-shirts in the cedar chest! Great inspiration!  Smiley
