Lately, something called "t-shirt yarn" has been going around the crafty parts of the internet. Basically, it's a cotton yarn that you make out of old t-shirts and then knit or weave into all sorts of cool things.

It's easy to make, and there's a great tutorial here. I can't wait to give it a try myself. It's a really practical way of upcycling old t-shirts and it produces a great-looking result!
