My friend, Kathy showed me a rug she knitted out of old t-shirts. I loved it and what a great idea. Coincidentally, I had just empty out my closet of stuff to donate. In my pile I had a number of t-shirts & tanks. Funny how I noticed my color choices in clothes, very color complimentary to each other. I had about 10 or so and I decided not to use any of the dark colors. I cut the t-shirts into 1 1/2 inch strips. I got a big sized crochet needle...I don't know how to knit!
The look of the rug is so cool. I used up all the strips but I need more because the rug, 18"x48" is not big enough. I'll have to dig in my closet, again... Tom has tons of white t-shirts I recycle, just not sure I want to use white.
Thank you Kathy for the great idea!
