I’ve always been a fan of rag rugs. But often if you aren’t selecting a color scheme they look a bit to country style for what I wanted. I wanted to make a rag rug by upcycling materials and have it be a fun bright color scheme for our bathroom, which has a claw foot tub and vintage tiles (our house is an original 1901 orchard house in Seattle).
I decided on T-Shirt yarn since it has a soft cozy feel to it vs. sheets or other old fabric. I had to buy many of the Tshirts at goodwill (they have a .99 tshirt wall). I used about 18 or so Tshirts in Grey tones and yellow tones to make this.
I was thinking of doing a tutorial on this, but there are so many great “make tshirt yarn” tutorials and sources on crochet, it seemed redundant.
This rug is about 2×3 feet, it took 4 hours to crochet with a size “P” hook. it took about the same amount of time to just make the T-shirt yarn…my least favorite part 😉
