Tees Into Rugs

As I was looking for inspiration for today's Thumbs Up, I ran into a really cool reuse project via Re-Nest by Laura @ Xoelle.  The project comprises of taking your old t-shirts and turning them into a rug.  

My husband has mounds and mounds of t-shirts that, honestly, have seen better days.  Some with raggedy necks and teeny tiny holes and spots here and there.  But now, I'm seeing them in a new light.

(don't worry sweetie, your t-shirts are not in any danger, I respect your private property and will ONLY take donations :o)  

I'm now realizing that he has a treasure in his dresser drawer.  I opened it and a ray of light hit my face.  There laid his t-shirt loot with festive images of Margaritaville and softies telling me that Life Is Good.  Life is good when you can re-purpose something old into something new and useful.  

Thank you Laura for sharing this great little project.

  1. Wow that is so cool and it does look so soft. Almost looks like the rug I bought at Target a while back. I so need to try this. Thanks MIti

  2. I bet that is super soft! What a great idea for someone crafty!

  3. Great idea! Thank you for sharing her blog.

    Blessings & Aloha!

  4. People nowadays are getting more resourceful and we now love recycling things like this rug made out of old t-shirts. Doing these things is one of the nicest ways of helping out our environment and it will make us save more money.

    In my case, I'm not that artistic when it comes to recycling things. All I know is that if there is an old stuff in our home that can still be useful, we will still use it and maintain its beauty. Like my carpets that's been with us for 15 years, but it's still looks good as new because we regularly bring it to some carpet cleaners (Cypress area) and let them do the carpet cleaning (Cypress).
