make some t-shirt yarn

I wanted to make some t-shirt poufs but in order to do that I needed to make some t-shirt yarn. I searched around for the best-easy-to-understand-clear tutorial and ended up having to combine a few. So here is the culmination of my tutorial mash up:

Take some t-shirts you can part with…

Cut under the graphic and put the graphic away (you can save the graphic for a t-shirt quilt or another project)
Cut the hem off and discard

Fold the shirt so the sides (the non cut sides) are one inch apart and cut from the bottom through the first fold

cut diagonally
you end up with a long pile of t-shirt which you can then wind up and use for any craft you desire!
up next? t-shirt poufs… If I get around to it…
