A couple of weeks ago, I tried out weaving a t-shirt yarn rug on a hula hoop.
Instead of a rug, I ended up with a bowl - but hey, it's a pretty bowl!
I thought that maybe I'd got the tension wrong as I wove the yarn, so I decided to cut up the remaining t-shirts in my clothes upcycling stash and try again.
Lucky I had a nice bowl to keep the balls of yarn in!
So once again I started with the hula hoop..
And slowly started weaving, trying to keep my tension even as I went.
Unfortunately, as I neared the end of my balls of yarn, things didn't seem to have gone as planned..
I cut and tied the ends and...
I've put my little dumbbells in this one.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
I've run out of t-shirt yarn now, but I'm sure I'll have more t-shirts in my upcycling stash again one day, and will want to try again to make a RUG!
Any hints or tips much appreciated!
I think it's a great way to upcycle old t-shirts, whether you make rugs or bowls!
