If you look through the DIY category on Pinterest at all you’ve probably seen the rugs made from t-shirts. I always like the idea, but tying all those strips of t-shirt to make a rug seemed daunting. I wondered how it would stand up to the wear and tear (not to mention washing). Then I saw this Upcycle Shaggy Pillow on CB2.
It looks like the same idea on a much smaller scale. Plus since no one is walking on it, it would get less wear and tear. I would probably chose one color rather than the multi-color here. All it would take is a square of hook rug mesh and strips of t-shirt. Tie the strips onto the canvas and then sew on a fabric back. This one just might go into my craft queue.
