I have so many old t-shirts that I would love to find new uses for. I usually use them as dusting rags but my mom told me that when she lived in Thailand they would cut up old t-shirts and braid them into floor mats. I loved the idea. I decided to cut up an old t-shirt and make a reusable coffee cup sleeve. I love this because you are saving the environment two ways.
Pull the strip tight so that the edges start curling. You can use the t-shirt yarn for anything now. Using the loom, I knitted 15 rows to make the sleeve. You can see my previous post on loom knitting, here.
This is such a quick, simple and inexpensive project that is functional and helps the earth at the same time!
