With an array of XXL Men's t-shirts from the thrift shop and large size crochet hook, you can create a beautiful and functional addition to your home in the form of a heavy-duty spot rug. Best of all, crochet is easily portable, so grab the t-shirt yarn and work on this project on the road! #homecrafts
Time: 4 Days Cost: $15 Difficulty: Easy
  • 15 Mens' XXL t-shirts from Goodwill made up this rug. Look for undecorated t-shirts of similar weights.
  • Cut the t-shirts to create "yarn", and crochet it in the round to create a circle, tying each new color on as you go.

    Does anyone know if you can make these by knitting them? Do you have a pattern site for knitting them you would like to share?

      Sweet Pea Studio I'm sorry I don't know how to knit, but I imagine you can knit with t-shirt yarn as well!

    Stretch the rings as you finish cutting them ;) They will curl up

      ChiWei It works great with sheets ChiWei! I have made several of them. Also Ginger if sheets are hard on your feet, try using flannel sheets, or better yet silky sheets. Although the silky ones might be a little slippery!
