There are many braided rug tutorials out there, but I love Homestead Weaver’s step-by-step instructions and pictures for each step. This project doesn’t require a loom, sewing, or any other tools, but does require some patience. The work would be quite worth it, though, to reuse a lot of your old t-shirts and have a beautiful rug once your done. Plus, a t-shirt rug would be a great conversation starter in your living room, dining room, or kitchen!
Now that you’ve been inspired by these five incredible projects, grab your old t-shirts and get to work! If you make any of our t-shirt projects, please share them with us on Facebook or in the comments section below– we love to see your work!
