T-shirt yarn macramé puppets

T-shirt yarn macramé puppets

Sitting on a mountain of old T-shirts?
Bought some T-shirt yarn but never got around crocheting or knitting that rug?
Or did you make that rug but you still have yarn left?
Here's a fun craft making use of T-shirt yarn.

T-shirt yarn macramé puppets

These T-shirt yarn puppets were part of our school's Spring fair activities last June and I can immediately add that they were a big hit among all ages.
It's a nice introduction to macramé as well.
If you don't have T-shirt yarn you can cut your own from old T-shirts (you can find how to do this online). Or you could use fabric strips, bias tape, cord, ribbon, ...

Slip the puppets on a key chain, use them to personalize school bags or make a bunch to make a cute mobile or garland for the nursery.

Recommended age: 5+
Required skills: ability to tie a knot

OMG these are so so clever! Absolutely the cutest thing. Don't you think they'd be perfect for Christmas trees in suitably Christmassy colours! Thanks SO much for sharing your cleverness.

These are really sweet. I'm thinking a large one using a tennis ball might be the perfect toy for our puppy.
Thank you for the tutorial.
