    Neat! I was using my serger to attach the ends, but this looks much easier.
    I’ll give it a try. I also like you fabric choice <3

    Thanks for that great tip! I crochet a basket with yarn and loved it (2014 Xmas gift for neighbors!). Will look for fabric at thrift stores.

    Hi! I love this and making tshirt yarn and was looking into using the jersey fabric to get more consistent yarn. I just experimented with a small bit of unusable tshirt shaped like a rectangle using this method. I was curious how the corners of yours did when stretched out (when you turn the cut at the ends of the fabric)? Because mine were ugly and stuck out quite a bit. I’m not exactly an expert with scissors so I was just looking for some tips for this! Thanks!

    Oh and also if you know how many yards you got out of the fabric? any rough guesstimate will do!

    Why not just remove the needles from your serger and use that to cut the fabric in strips? I’ve done it and it works wonderful – and fast.

    Hi Heidi

    Your yarn looks beautiful. I tried out the method but had a lot of problems with the corners. No matter how I pulled, the corners won’t curl in nicely. It just stuck out. So the necklace project I tried to make look kind of awkward with parts sticking out…

    Please help! Thanks! 😃

    Hi Heidi,
    I have problem with my crochet bag project. When I pulled the corner part is seem weird or twisted in different direction. Can you pls advise? Thanks in advance.

      It makes sense that it would do that because it is a different grain. Heidi, did you have that problem?. Would it be better to make strips straight on yardage and then sew together?

    Thanks for the tip . I’ve read a lot of sewing tutorials online where there was a tremendous amount of work involved in making one continuous piece of fabric. This looks a lot easier!
