Yes! It's possible!
Just five minutes.
Get those scissors ready!
Here's how I strip a shirt for my rag rugs. . . .
Cut off Buttons
Trim off Collar
Tear off button plackets; Trim bottom hem
Clip from the bottom of the shirt every 1 1/2" or so;
I don't measure--it will all work into the weaving just fine.
Tear strips as far up as they will go.
Trim off sleeve cuffs
Clip and tear up the seam; lay flat.
Clip as before across the bottom of sleeve and tear upwards.
Go to the back of the shirt; Spread out flat; Cut straight across,
freeing the torn strips--
lots quicker than cutting each individual strip;
Do the same with the sleeves.
There's often a 'V' shape left at the underarm; If it's large enough,
strip it, too; Tear strips at yoke.
Here's all that's left!
I save the pockets for aprons and quilts.
Bundle and tie with the string from the cut-off hem.
That's all there is to it!
