How to Make Fabric Twine
- fabric scraps in assorted colors (mine are about 1/2″ wide)
- large spools (preferably) or something else to wind your twine on to (I made my own).
- finger moistener (optional but very helpful)
- before you start here’s a tip: it helps to have moist fingers, it will make the process a little faster and the twine will end up tighter and stronger. So keep a finger moistener on hand, just in case.
- gather all your fabric scraps and cut or tear into strips of different length.
- start by using one short and one long strip and tie them together with a knot.
- slide the knot under something heavy to keep strips still (like a stack of books, or a large flower pot or even your sewing machine).
- twist each strip towards your right.
- then twist each strip around each other. Work in small areas.
- follow the above steps until you finish the short strip.
- to add another strip and join, just leave a tail of about 1″ and wrap the new strip around it.
- make sure both your strips don’t finish at the same time or your join may be weakened; that’s why is best to start with one short and one long strip.
- when done, end with another knot.
- then just wrap the twine around spools.
