Beautiful Rug From Old T-Shirts

by Rachel Baker on June 30, 2014

These are so cool. I was just going through old clothes and wondering what to do with them, besides the obvious ‘donate them’. I also was thinking I need a few new cool rugs for the kitchen.

this may become one of my summer projects!

In this instructable, I’ll teach you how to make a really cool rug, like the one pictured, from your old t-shirts! For me, this rug didn’t cost any money because I used stuff I already had at my disposal. This project is a great way to put all of those colorful junior high track/soccer/rugby/quidditch shirts to use if you don’t want to donate them.

Here’s what you’ll need:
– 5-10 old t-shirts, depending on how big you want this rug (I used 5.5 for a small bedside rug)
– a pair of scissors
– needle and thread
– sewing machine (optional)

The hardest part about this was how long it took to make, but it turned out cool enough that I wouldn’t mind making another one. Keep reading to find out how I did it!
