Read on to learn how to make a recycled T-shirt rug. Yes, you can actually buy patterns specifically for recycled T-shirt rugs. Depending upon the size of the room, there can be more rug extension around the bed, as seen in this room by Lauren Nelson Design, but not less, handmade viscose rug which would make the rug look insignificant being covered mostly by the bed. You may find a groove with a different size that you like better, so it doesn’t hurt to buy a very small amount (like a couple of feet) of a few different sizes to test them out first before buying lots of yardage. Cut all of your T-shirts to the same size blocks. Fuse the interfacing to your T-shirts per the manufacturer’s instructions. Answer that question first before you think about making a recycled T-shirt rug, because if you love them, there’s one way to do it, and if you hate them, there’s another. Your shirts already coordinate well with other clothes in your closet, making it easy to match your new bag with any outfit. If you insist on holding onto your old clothes instead of selling or donating them, don’t let good fabric go unused. If you really hate your old T-shirts, you don’t want to flaunt the designs everywhere. Before you start sewing, be sure that the sides of each piece of fabric you want to see outside and inside your bag are facing out, not toward each other. Flip your pieces inside out — so the seams will be on the inside of your pillow — and sew three and a half sides. Choose a large-scale, colorfully patterned, soft-to-the-touch rug or wall-to-wall carpet that will absorb sound and stand up to daily living abuse. Let the carpet dry before using the area again. Cola: Immediately blot a cola spill with paper towels, then clean the area with 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water. Blot up any excess, and rinse until the brown color is gone. Red wine: Immediately blot up all moisture from the spill, then sprinkle the area with salt. The rug should cover the majority of the walking area in a hallway or entry, as shown in this entry by Lisa Burdus. Ketchup: Remove ketchup from a rug by sponging a mixture of 1 cup vinegar and 2 cups water into the rug. Wood: Add a cup of plain vinegar to a gallon bucket of water, and mop lightly onto hardwood floors (do not saturate).
