Hi :) If you are inspired to make your own version of this rug - I'd love to see it- do come back and leave a comment with a link to it! Thanks a mill
I'm sharing an upcycling project I finished recently. It's a Rag Rug I made from old, worn out tees and vests. I made this by single crocheting a long chain from fabric strips. It could also be made by plaiting/braiding strips of fabric together.
I used a single crochet chain as it uses a single strip of fabric, as opposed to the three you would need for braiding. So I found it made up faster than braiding.
Start by cutting into the tee shirt hem at an angle
2. Continue cutting around the tee, in a continuous circle. I cut the strip about 2 1/2 inches wide.
Follow the angle of the first cut , to give a continuous strip of fabric
3. Then tie a loop at one end of the strip and insert your crochet hook - you will be crocheting a long chain following the directions below.
4.Catch your fabric with your hook and pull a loop through the first loop (see below)

5. Continue pulling through loops until your chain is as long as you want
6.You can tie on more fabric as you get to the end of your strip
I joined the strips together before I made the chain.
You could sew them together but it was much quicker to use this method of joining (from V and co ). how-to-jersey-knit-bracelet best of luck if you decide to make one:)

7.Start your rug by coiling your chain and stitching along the edges to hold them together
