Beautiful Rug From Old T-Shirts


In this tutorial, you can learn how to make a really cool rug, like the one pictured, from your old T-shirts! This rug costs no money because you can reuse some old T-shirts that you don’t use anymore . This project is a great way to put all of those colorful junior high track/soccer/rugby/quidditch shirts in 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)

    Hi there! I’m writting you because currently i’m working on the same project.
    I could not sew it using the machine because my ikea one seems to be too little, and there is not space enough under the needle and the pedal to slide the whole cloth.
    Therefore i’m stiching it up manually (i think it will take me ages to get finished)
    Here comes the problem. The result is not flat. My rug is kind of bulky. Sorry i can not explain it really good. Looks like while sewing some parts of the cloth are more tigh than others and the rug became like a bowl…
    Did someone else have this issue?
    Do you think it will became flat once i put it on the floor and we step on it?
    Please advise!
