Turning tshirts into yarn

I I have a bunch of old kids clothes that are too worn to be hand-me-downs but I can't just throw them out either 😄. So I decided I'd crochet some rag rugs!  First step is turning the shirts into strips...

I got a cheap quilting tool set from Michaels (along with a mat) and got to work turning t-shirts into strips.  #1 cut the sides all the way to the end of the sleeves #2 make strips, DO NOT go all the way to the other side, work in zig zags, go all the way up to the top of the shirt including the sleeves #3 wrap it up into a ball

Check out my next post that shows you what you can do with this yarn! http://denknits.blogspot.com/2016/09/crochet-rag-rug.html
