Rag Rug

rag rug

This rug is made from old t-shirts but any fabric can be used.

Cut your chosen fabric into 25cm wide strips.В  With a t-shirt cut off the hem and gradually cut up the body in one continuous piecerag rug

Plait strips, using different colours. Keep one length shorter than the other two to make plaiting easier. Join on a new length with a flat/reef knot.В  Roll into a ball

When you have a nice sized ball start to sew together. Begin by making a small coil, flat on the table, and oversew or ladder stitch together.В  Continue coiling and sewing until the rug is as large as you want it.

Cut up and plait t-shirts or fabric as you acquire it, adding to your ball and re-rolling.
