How To Make Recycled T-Shirt Potholders
You can make some great woven potholders from up-cycled clothing! The potholders I just made from t-shirts, well I should specify and say actually from the sleeves of my daughter's old t-shirts, are so great I just had to share this idea with you.
I actually made two potholders from my finds from the neglected laundry basket. The pink and light green potholder was made from pink girl's knit tights, and the sleeves of a long-sleeved size girl's 8 t-shirt. The second t-shirt was made entirely from long sleeve t-shirt sleeves, and I should add, that with t-shirt material you can get a nicer sized potholder since it's less stretchy than tights and much less stretchy than store bought loops.Make beautiful things that are also useful!If you try this, I recommend putting them together while listening to a great podcast or watching a movie.
- Loom and hook
- Cloth scissors (Or a pair of regular scissors)
- Fabric glue – Optional but recommended
