    Jennifer,

    What a wonderful idea; I have loads of tee shirts saved up. But where did you find that lovely wooden potholder loom?

  4. A few years ago I made a big loom from scrap lumber and finishing nails and then used the entire width of some t-shirts for loops to make a throw rug. Love the idea of patching small ones together ala granny square style.

  5. JayeL says:

    I had one of these looms when I was a kid and sincerely disliked the feel of the loops. Recycling t-shirts is fantastic! Much better than sending them off to the goodwill (not that supporting the Goodwill isn’t a great idea, but I am pretty sure they have enough t-shirts!) ;-).

    I love Stacie’s idea of making a throw rug.

  6. Eileen says:

    Great segment Jennifer. I’m so happy that you have decided to follow your heart. You are very inspiring. I saw your interview from knit & crochet today this weekend. Obviously a rerun but fun to see on tv.

    It was so cool to see you “live” and in person. You are very comfortable in front of the camera which made for a great segment. I’m a long time listener and happy to have been along for the journey to Episode 100! :) You and your guests make for excellent company during my work travel.

    Thank you Jennifer!

    Hooray! I recently sought out loops for potholders; all I could find were the awful synthetic sort of things (surely, they melt!). This is a great idea. Also, the new looms are awful, I’ll be buying one of yours!!

    You might need to cut yours longer than Pearl because she cuts hers on the opposite grain as you. The length or her strips is the width of the shirt which has the greater stretch.
