In Defense of the T-shirt...:) :)
I am posting two photos of t-shirt material that I just cut to show the difference in when it is cut and when it is ready to hook. I do not use a cutting machine; ALL my materials are cut using scissors, thus various widths are achieved. In cutting a t-shirt, if you cut the hem off completely and then cut from the bottom to the top, you can get a nice length depending on the size of the shirt, of course and you can cut whatever size you desire. I use different widths so as to get any number of different effects, dimensions, whatever. When I use it to outline something, such as a house, I use a very small cut. Works fine for me... In my pic. here, the tie dye material is t-shirt that I bought on e-bay. I love it in sky and water. I have green that I used in the ground of some of my mats. I bought other colors but haven't used them yet. Sometime I hope to do a sunrise/sunset and will use some of it there.
