If you're like us you've got drawers full of old t shirts that you don't wear but can't bear to give away because they came from this concert or that charity run or your old high school team or the dentist who did your braces or whatever (why does everything come with a t shirt?).
I got tired of looking at the sorry old t shirts stacked in my drawers and last spring I decided to do something about it. I had seen enough rag rugs to know that there must be a way to make something useful and I was right. This tutorial will show you everything you need to know about how to cut your t shirts, create your yarn and make a pretty rad rug. I chose to crochet mine like the example here, but I've seen some nice ones that are knit and even some that are shaggier.
I used different colors, but ours looks a lot like this one
I wish I had a picture of ours to share, but it's at the other house and I can't find even a glimpse of it in our huge file of digital photos. Maybe I can snap one while we're home this week and add it later. I'll be posting less frequently for the next couple of weeks while we slowly move out of this house and back into our home home. We're all looking forward to the move and to resuming life there.
