What To Do With Your Old T-Shirts

Why don't you turn them into a rug for your bedroom?

Do you have a million old shirts eating up all your closet space? Why don't you go through them and select a few that you can finally let go of and turn them into a useful rug?

Here's what you'll need:

  • Old t-shirts
  • Ruler
  • Scissors

What to do:

1. Cut strips of fabric around 1/2" wide and 4" to 6" long from your old t-shirts. You can go all-out with random colorful fabrics for a fun “anything-goes” look, or you can choose different shades of one color for a more subtle and polished appeal.

2. Cut out a rectangular (or circular) shaped fabric from the back of an XL t-shirt or any sturdy fabric material to form the base. Cut slits about half an inch wide and 3/4" apart. Leave a 1" border.

3. Take a strip of fabric and tie a knot around two slits on the base, lengthwise. Repeat this procedure until you’ve completed the whole base. Place your finished rug by the door or under the coffee table.
