Believe It or Not, This is Recycled Tee-Shirts! (Guest Post)

Please welcome my new friend Melynda, who blogs at Mom's Sunday Cafe.  I found this post both fun and inspiring, and I hope you'll agree!

Hello I am Melynda from Mom's Sunday Cafe. I am slowly slowing down life and getting back to more crafts, gardening and frugal from scratch cooking. I am excited to share some of my favorite blog posts here with you! You can come visit me at my place too, where I believe that, food should be surrounded by family so we are nourished completely.

I have shared and posted directions for making tee shirt yarn, but look, this is made from tee shirt yarn! I made this table runner for my sister; she has a very beautiful and large dining table built by her husband.


This shot shows the length of the table, and help to illustrate the need of a rustic runner for everyday use.


The runner was at the far end, so that we could spread out and visit while eating dinner!


It is not as attractive on my table! It was made for the richer wood tones of her table.

Close up for detail.

Thanks Kathy for a wonderful dinner, enjoyable conversation and letting me take photos of your runner!

Be sure to visit Melynda at her blog!

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I love Melynda and read her blog religiously. She is so creative and fun. Be sure to check out all of her Wednesday posts where she writes about what she is NOT eating. Those are my favorites.

  2. I cannot believe that was made from T-shirts. That is awesome and it does look beautiful on her table.
