T-Shirt Yarn Crochet Pouf

by Julie Hirt

I’ve made a lot of changes to my craft room and finished projects, so I’m hoping to get around to posting a few updates.

Recently I’ve seen a lot of pictures of crochet poufs that I’ve loved (Pinterest).  I’m not paying a few hundred dollars for one either!   So here is my version of a crochet pouf I made a couple of weeks ago out of t-shirt yarn. I’m very happy with how it turned out and how quick it was to make.

I used this tutorial for creating the yarn. Can you believe this used FIFTEEN shirts! Originally, I had planned on using my husbands old undershirts and ran out.  After a quick trip to the Salvation Army and $.50 a shirt, I decided I may need to find a few more uses for t-shirt yarn. Maybe some baskets to hold my WIP?

It’s pretty sturdy and when you sit on it, it doesn’t have a ton of give so it’s super comfy. It’s stuffed with 2 old comforters. You can’t tell in the picture but it’s about 2 feet wide by 8″ tall. I didn’t use a pattern, I just double crocheted a basic crochet circle until it was big enough.  Then I DC a bunch of rounds until I was satisfied with the height.  Then decreased the circle and left a hole big enough to stuff!


It sits in front of this AWESOME Craigslist find.  This chair is amazing. A girl had a lot of cute items listed and no longer had room for them after moving in with her fiance. Her loss! She had recently had it recovered and it’s down stuffed and oh-so-comfy, as you can tell by the 3 little squirts who have claimed it as their own.


If you can crochet and like the look of the poufs, I’d recommend making one!

  1. This is my ABSOLUTE favorite version of any of the crocheted poufs I’ve seen anywhere!!!! Gorgeous!!! I’m in the research phase for making one for my newly pregnant sister’s nursery! Thank you for the inspiration AND for listing the number of shirts you used!! How thin did you cut your shirt material to make the t-yarn? Thanks!!

  2. Kindle International version was also released on October 7, 2009 and marketed in more than 100 countries.

    This is primarily because for so long, Amazon refused to release the number of
    Kindle’s sold. All the shades are sharp and rich,
    making it easier to read all sizes of text.
