During January, we taught the women at our partner agencies how to take an old sheet and cut and tear it just so to turn it into a ball of yarn.

That ball of yarn can be used for many projects, but in this workshop we taught the women how to braid the yarn together to create bold ropes that can be worn as jewelry or used as belts and headbands.

One of the women from Magdalene St. Louis is braiding several colorful ropes and is planning to stitch the ropes together to make a big, colorful rug.

Materials used: worn bed sheets

Skills taught: creating yarn from old sheets~braiding
