When I see T-shirts pass their “wearing” prime, I see rugs!! I gather 25-35 T-shirts (depending on the size of rug I want to make) , cut 2 inch strips and start braiding. I would prefer to use wool strips, but wool clothing in Southeastern Arizona has a very short season and is very hard to find in large quantities. So I substituted T-shirts and have made some very nice braided rugs.
It doesn’t matter what is on the front of the T-shirt, when you cut the strips, the strips naturally curls with the right side to the inside side.
And I hate to throw anything away, so I made empty pill containers into handy quilt thread holders. Drill a hole in the top to pull the thread through, a piece of hook and loop holds a small pincushion on the side. (Not my best photography, but you should get an idea of how it’s made.
The letter “G” pictures tomorrow.
