Brisbane: Recycled t-shirt craft

Gather up your old t-shirts for this super fun meet up as part of BrisStyle's Saviours of the Lost Arts! Quickly whip up some t-shirt yarn to be used for anything you can crochet, knit, macrame weave or plait OR use your old t-shirts to make sweet little rosettes in a matter of minutes OR create a fabulous new infinity scarf! The options for re-purposing your old t-shirts are only limited by your imagination!

Meet up details 

When: Thursday 16 May, 6-8pm

Where: Indooroopilly Library, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, Level 4, 322 Moggill Road, Indooroopilly

What to bring:
1. Old t-shirts: The more the merrier! Note that if making t-shirt yarn or infinity scarves printed t-shirts don't work as well as un-printed, the ink on printed sections don't curl up to make a nice tube.
2. Scissors or even better a rotary cutter
3. Needle and thread, fabric glue and fabric scraps: If making rosettes
4. Cutting board
5. If crochet is your thing a hook size 10-12 is best.

If you don't have some of these things we will have some extras available on the day for you to use (other than t-shirts, definitely bring at least one of those).

RSVP: As soon as possible by emailing This meet up is booking up quickly!

See you then!

For me at home, my old t-shirts have so far been transformed into rags or floor mats in the kitchen because their material is good for absorbing moisture. However, after seeing your project idea here, I think I might just re-create the next batch of old t-shirts into something more awesome. I totally agree that you just have to let your creativity take over and produce something magical. Fabric is also good to create storage containers for accessories and knick-knacks.
