Crochet/T-shirt Rug Free Tutorial

Hello everyone and Happy Monday!

Here is a really neat idea for a rug. All you need is a bunch of old t-shirts, some yarn and a hook. Here is a link to this super easy tutorial on ‘good ideas for you’.

crochet t-shirt rugI am going to make this rug for my kids play area once we move. I think it would be great. I wouldn’t have to use a bunch of nice yarn on something that will probably have milk and juice and food dropped on it. I don’t know about you guys but my kids are rough on everything. It is like living with 2 little BamBams from the flintstones hehe. And it would for sure be easy to wash being made up of t-shirts and all.

And just in case you don’t know how to make a ball of t-shirt yarn, I know I didn’t, here is a link to a tutorial on that as well from craft passion. It is really cool! I didn’t realize they cut the yarn to make 1 continuous piece.
