A project


I can buy t-shirts at a thrift store near me........for a dime each.  I choose the largest ones I can, and fun colors.  I cut the bottoms off, then cut them into strips.  The strips are actually loops, I connect the loops together kind of like you would two rubber bands.........then roll them into balls.


Some t-shirts shed and crumble all over me.......I am in t-shirt dust........some cut up without any fuss.  I love to see my *pan* filled with rolled up balls, ready to crochet.


I am going to crochet the biggest rug in the world made out of t-shirts.  So far, this one is worth 80cents....plus my time.  Sheba wishes I would hurry and put it on the floor for her.  I just hope I can find a washing machine large enough to wash it in. 
What are you working on?  Do you always finish what you start?  Do you have more than one project going at a time?

If I could find t shirts for 10 cents, I would try that! I love it! I have lots of projects going...in the quilting area...it's a big deal when I finish something. :(

I've got some rolls of fabric ready to make a rag rug... but I can't seem to find the time to sit down and start. Hopefully soon! :) You always make the loveliest things!

Looks like a fun but big project. I plan on doing some needle punch and rug hooking this fall but sad to say I do not always finish my projects.I look forward to seeing your finished rug.
