Description

I made this rug using strips of worn – out tee-shirts and kids clothes. I cut strips of about two inches wide,joined them. And then using a large hook, I crocheted a loooooong chain and then coiled it and stitched it from the reverse. See instructions here for more details.

There are more detailed instructions and extra pictures on my blog if you need them Cuada Design

Material Notes

I used tee shirts and vest, all made from jersey tee shirting

    Awesome! I’ve been collecting scraps for one of these for ages, but never get around to making it. I love how bright and cheery yours is :)

      Thanks stefanika:) it’s a great way to use old clothes which are too worn out to pass on.

      It’s a fun project for sure – but it uses alot of fabric!
