All you need are some t-shirts, a non slip mat, some sharpies and a good pair of scissors.
DIY Upcycled T-Shirt Rug – Plush Zebra Bath Mat
Do you have some old T-shirts lying around? Did you know that you can make a soft and plushy rug with a custom design with old T-shirts? If you like keeping your hands busy but you don’t know how to knit this might just be the project for you. It is very simple but it does take some time. It is a great craft therapy project in my opinion.
I got this non slip mat at the dollar tree. It is the perfect size for a welcome mat or bath mat.
The t-shirts are cut into t-shirt yarn and then into 3" inch lengths to tie onto the non slip mat.
The pattern or design is drawn on the mat grid with a sharpie and the matching color of yarn is tied on the mat.
Once all the yarns are tied in place the last step is to trim down the yarns to a consistent height.
You can find more details for this project in the attached video.
