I got a couple of size 20 t-shirts in Primark for £1.80. One t-shirt made a good balls worth.
You need jersey material t-shirts that aren't stretch and preferably without side seams, but seams aren't the end of the world.
The next part you will cut is the top but you need to open it out to be able to do it.
(This is probably unnecessary, you could just pull over the bit you need but stick with me, I'm a Simple Simon!)
I've drawn the dotted lines to show the cuts.
Only cut this layer of the material, don't cut through the strips underneath.
And this will happen if your t-shirt had side seams.
For me that wasn't the end of the world. It totally depends on what your craft is.
For the lengths we needed the seams were no issue or just plaited in fine.
