I have had trouble making these cups before. 'Easy', 'Simple', 'Fun'. Not for me. But I tell you, these directions are easy, and simple enough. And I had fun making this. Thanks

Enjoying all things Crafty and Homemade, All things Clean and Natural. That is why I make Recycled T Shirt Yarn.

I began by crocheting hats for my first Etsy shop. North Street Crochet. I enjoyed enough success with the hats that I decided it was time to devote my efforts towards my craft and quit my job. It has been a few years now and I couldn't be happier.

Somewhere along the way I began to make yarn from once loved, no longer wanted t shirts. I really can't remember how I got started with the yarn. The response to my yarn was very good and I began to devote most of my efforts to making the yarn.

I still make hats when requested.

Welcome to my shop. My name is Mike, founder of Mike's T Shirt Yarn.

Mike's T Shirt Yarn is all about Upcycling/Recycling T shirts. All of the items in Mike's T Shirt Yarn are hand made from clean, no longer wanted T shirts. I rescue these unwanted T shirts from some less glamorous fate and hand craft them into new and useful products.

My main focus is on creating yarn or crafting cord from T shirts. I sometimes make other items using my yarn and offer those items in my shop as well. I might crochet a bowl or make a scarf for example.

All of my yarn or crafting cord is hand made by me. I spent some time developing my own techniques for cutting and finishing my yarns. My process make my yarns unique with a quality that is uniform and consistent. Each ball of my yarn is a single strand with out any knots or seams. You will not be disappointed.

A little about me.

I am a middle aged guy who is also an empty nester. It is just my wife and I now that our children are grown and out on their own. I have always been a creative person and have tried many different things over the years. Art and crafting are a big part of my life. Making things with my own hands is very rewarding to me and gives me a great deal of satisfaction. Being conscience of the environment as much as I can in the things that I create make it all that more satisfying.

Please enjoy your time here at Mike's T Shirt Yarn.

Thank you.
