Recycle T-shirts into Beautiful Rugs When I first saw these T-shirt rugs, I was intrigued by the idea of making a beautiful rug from worn out and outgrown T-shirts. It satisfied my penny-pinching nature to recycle rags into something useful and beautiful without spending a dime. The T-shirt rugs remind me of the braided and crocheted rag rugs that my grandmother used to make. Depending on the size of your T-shirts, it will take from 4 to 10 adult sized T-shirts to make a rug.
Recycling worn out t-shirts into beautiful rugs satisfies my penny-pinching nature. Here are complete instructions for cutting t-shirts into yarn and crocheting a throw rug similar to the braided rugs grandmother used to make.
