I’m cheap (I think I’ve mentioned this before), so it’s hard for me to through away old bed sheets and clothes. I try to donate them, or turn them into cleaning rags, but how many cleaning rags can one have? And let’s face it, some of my stuff cannot be donated.
Here’s a link on how to make “yarn” with rags. All you need are super sized needles or hook, and you can actually make some really good looking things (check out the bathroom mat shown in the article).
Update (27/5/08): Here is the pattern for the bath mat shown in the tutorial.
