Awesome scarf!  Dang, if I knew how to weave or knit or something I could probably make yarn out of the MEDIUM FLAT RATE BOX full of t-shirt bits I have.  I cut the fronts or backs out of most of them for a project, so all that's left is the plain parts minus a chunk.  I'm sure I'll find a good home for them somewhere...sometime...but for now, they are on my radar to destash when I get a chance.

ALWAYS: Makes me wish I had a rotary cutter! That's an awesome tutorial, thanks for posting it. I bookmarked it if I *ever* get one. lol!
I have a tutorial in the works to use the sleeves and even the hems, so I'm going to go ahead and post it on my blog (after I finish my finals...). I will post a link here, for everyone to use then (if they want)!

haha yes! It feels pointless being "green" if half the shirt is going to the trash!
I save the itty bitty scraps of fabric I have left over from things as stuffing for pillow props (again, I'm a photographer..)
And the barely existent scraps of paper from paper crafts to blend later into homemade paper!
My bf says I'm OCD. I say I'm just doing my part to save the planet. Wink

There's a book called Tease, which is all about reconstructing t-shirts. And something I remember seeing for using the tshirt sleeves is using them to make sachets. Just fill with stuffing and something that smells good, and stuff them in drawers, or in shoes.

New to this thread, but thinking about joining this destash-along. I love the idea Smiley

For the sleeves from t-shirts. Cut them off the shirt as is, turn them inside out, sew up the raw edge. Make a small cut into hemmed portion of the t-shirt on either side of the side seam. Add a draw string (ribbon, string, braided yarn, t-shirt strip etc).

They make great first aid kits, make-up bags, goody bags, toy bags, or I like to use them for carrying around small craft projects that I can do while waiting at the dr. or anywhere else.

Can also be used to organize the craft room.

They are also good for using in kids crafts. Let them paint them, tie-dye them, or do whatever else they might want to do to them.

Adult t-shirt sleeves make cute super hero masks.

Ok, I decided I am in. Is there anything I need to do other then post completed stash busting projects once a month?

More mitts! I'm obsessed. I need action shots.

My niece was not enthusiastic about modeling for me.


This cowl is from baby blanket yarn. It is SO soft and pillowy! It's meant for an adult, but it's adorable on her. Cheesy


And my March-themed item! I actually went with the theme for once. Argyle (loooove argyle) and "green!" I love making these coffee cozies.

I've also got a bag cut out and ready to be sewn in the same argyle flannel and an organic cotton t-shirt.


With all the t-shirt scarves and bags i make using t-shirts... i've got tons of t-shirt material. All from the armpits up. I definitely have plans for the sleeves at some point. And i want to look into making t-shirt yarn out of the small scraps.

Mitts are addicting indeed.  I've got a pair on the needles right now. Yours look great, and I really like the cup cozy, too.
