Turn an old t-shirt into a no-sew upcycled knotted t-shirt headband

Spring cleaning also equals spring purging. Going through everyone’s clothes, seeing what still fit, what doesn’t, and what’s too worn out to keep wearing. Clothes that are too small, but in good condition, can get donated.

But then there are always some with holes or that are too worn out to be donated. So what to do with those?

My favorite use for old t-shirts is to turn them into tarn, aka t-shirt yarn. Then I can knit with them, crochet with them, or make them into headbands! Specifically knotted no-sew t-shirt headbands.

I took two equal sections of t-shirt yarn and folded each length into thirds. Then I laid the two sections on top of each other and knotted them as seen below:

Once the t-shirt yarn was knotted I trimmed the ends. Then I cut out another strip of t-shirt fabric. I hot glued the ends of the knotted headband together and wrapped the t-shirt fabric around them. Hot glue makes this a no-sew project!

Here is the back of the knotted t-shirt headband.

Know who else is taking something old, ready for the trash, and making it new again? Energizer and their new EcoAdvanced batteries. This is the first battery on the market to use recycled batteries, and it’s also Energizer’s longest lasting alkaline ever. Which makes it perfect for my video game playing boys.

When the game controllers are low on batteries I know it’s time to head to Walmart to pick up some new ones. The EcoAdvanced batteries are also available in AAA.
