T-Yarn Flower Baby Bib

Posted on July 8, 2010

Crafting with recycled materials is so addicting. I’m back with another green crafting project using a thrift store t-shirt I got free as it had a bleach stain. It was a pretty pink so I thought it would make a nice baby bib. This baby bib is crocheted from the t-yarn I created from the old t-shirt. Here is my tutorial on how I create t-yarn and how I curl it before crocheting. This baby bib uses about half of an adult sized seamless-sides t-shirt which has been cut into 1/4″ wide strips.

I had shared another t-yarn baby bib before but this crochet pattern has been simplified and makes for an even quicker project. I added flowers as an extra embellishment. I hope you enjoy this free baby bib pattern.

    You have got to STOP THE MADNESS! No more awesome patterns, no more green ways to do things. I don’t have enough time in one day to handle it all. There is not enough time in the world to do everything! Please….STOP THE MADNESS.

    You are AWESOME! I have just discovered your site and absolutely love it. T-yarn was totally unknown to me until I stumbled on it last night. Who’d have thunk all the things you can do with an old tshirt? I always thought I was resourceful, but now I know that I’ve been missing out on tons of things I could have been doing. THANK YOU! Marking and coming back to you. Wonderful, wonderful!

    Love it, love it, love it. I have a wool cutter and wonder if that might work as a cutter T shirt yarn? Equally cute are tutu skirts I created from different T shirts gathered into strips and sewed onto a base. My grand daughters live in theirs. I had to buy it……… I think. (sp)

    40 years ago I knew a Navy wife who crocheted wonder bread wrappers into
    amazing round rag rugs. She was way ahead of her time!

    Please keep those ideas coming! Mary in NH
