Random Recast: T-Shirts Day 1

Filed Under: Crafts, Living Spaces, Crafts & Celebrations

In Random Recast, we find new uses for ordinary things. This week: T-shirts.

Would you believe that this gorgeous ombre rug was made from...t-shirts? Well, believe it. This stylish take on rag rugs was made by cutting t-shirts into strips, braiding them together and then stitching the braids into a coil. What makes this rug (by etsy seller GreenAtHeart) so chic is that the tees were all in the same color family. A mix of colors would produce a more whimsical look. For a different way to create a t-shirt rag rug, take a look at this tutorial by CraftStylish.

    Not surprising at all. People have been making rag type rugs from whatever scraps they have for probably thousands of years. I have seen ones made from old jeans too. The only thing about this rug featured is having enough of the right colors. I would suggest buying clothes from a thrift store especially on their sale days ( Salvation Army is a good one) if you wanted to try this.
    I could see how this could be a good idea if you want a certain color of rug and cant find one in that (those) color (s) at an affordable price.

    for centuries, the kings of france had rugs made from the pubic hair of their mistresses, from whence female pubic hair derives two of its many euphemisms: rug or carpet...and this is about all i've managed to retain from my education in the atlanta public school system.
