Here’s a sneak peak of my latest project that I’m working on. I hope to finish it this weekend and share the finished project with you all on Monday for our Make-It-Monday post. I have been seeing these t-shirt rag rugs all over Pinterest and I have a stack of old t-shirts in my closet that have been staring at me for months, just begging me to do something creative with them. Upcycling is really big right now, basically taking an item and turning it into something different. Just do a search on Pinterest for upcycling ideas and you will find tons of ideas, maybe you can get creative with something that’s already laying around your house.
When I post the finished upcycled tshirt rag rug I will be sure to give you a tutorial on how to make one for yourself. Since I am in Kentucky I have an assortment of UK blue and white shirts so making a blue and white rug was my first choice. I marked off the base of the rug in a chevron pattern, alternating the blue and white.
Here’s what I have finished so far.
