Brisbane: Recycled t-shirt craft

Hello Brisbane Owls and BrisStylers!

The combined meet up of two fab Brisbane crafty groups you've been waiting for! It's time to raid your wardrobe or the local op shop to give new life to old t-shirts!

There are three options for re-cycling your old t-shirts this time! We'll show you how to 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-purposeing your old t-shirts are only limited by your imagination!

As always if recycling t-shirts isn't your thing bring along your own craft to work on. It's all about taking time out for some crafty fun, a chat and laugh and a cuppa :)

Meet up details

When: Sunday 18 November, 10:30am-12:30pm

WhereCarindale Library, Westfield Carindale, 1151 Creek Road, Carindale

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

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

See you then!

Wish I could be there. Crocheted three t shirt yarn rugs this winter for the first time. Warning: Addictive! Hints: every bit of the shirt can be used except maybe hems, and t shirt yarn sheds significant 'dandruff' while being worked. Have a great time!
