Make Rugs And Pillows From Your Old Clothes!

One thing you may not know about me is that I’ve been wearing the same 6 or 7 t-shirts for the past… hm… 10 years.  I’m wearing one I got ten years ago right now, as I type.  It’s a vintage T-Shirt to begin with.  It’s not past its prime quite yet… And for days of raining and typing, its just perfect.

When things have outstayed their welcome in my home, I tend to hit the donation bin frequently.  Not everything is donatable though, as these 10 t-shirts will be not suitable for wear.  But… they will be suitable for a rag rug!

Today, let’s explore ways to turn old fabric into new art!!!

rag rugsWhile there are fancier rag rugs than others, even the most simplistic rug- made of old scarves, old scraps… old sweaters!… old t-shirts… things that can’t be worn any more but have the potential to become a fantastic rug- are fancy in themselves as they have your own creative energy mixed into them!

You can skip the rug and make twine that can become a macrame plant hanger (ooooh!) or even just ties for your curtains…

Something to do before you think of putting old fabric in the — gasp!!!- trash.

Eco-friendly, artfully brilliant and super-rewarding!  xoxo Dana
