This is such a great way to reuse old t-shirts that would otherwise find their way into the trash at my house. I am thinking I will make some t-shirt yarn and then make these potholders. I have a bunch of t-shirts set aside to make a blanket also, but once the pictures are cut off the rest of the t-shirt would go in the garbage. This would be a great way to do both!

The idea behind these hot pads is commendable. I would most likely buy tee shirt yarn at the store because frankly, this family does not wear very many tees and the tees that we wear we end up keeping for at least 3 or more years, so... great idea for upcycling, though! It is a great way to teach your kids how to protect their environment by reducing waste and reusing what they can. Thanks for the idea!

Most of my husbands tee shirts go toward my cleaning rag collection, but since the yarn tutorial calls for the bottom half of the tee, there will still be plenty left for cleaning rags! Ive converted plastic grocery bags to plarn, so Im already familiar with the general idea. These hotpads will be great practice working with this recycled yarn.
