The t-shirt rug is done. Perfect for wiping my feet when I get home from work.
Nine old t-shirts saved from the landfill (3 yellow, 2 pink and 4 green).
I used a really big vintage crochet hook about 10 inches long and thicker than a pencil.
Here is how I joined the 1 1/2 inch t-shirt strips:
Put two strips together, fold the ends over and snip.
Angle the sides to reduce bulk.
Turn one strip to face the opposite direction and line up the holes.
Pull the end of the bottom strip up through the holes.
All the way through, so you end up with a tidy join.
Don't pussy-foot; you'll need bunches of t-shirt "yarn." It crochets up quickly.
Know what I mean?
