100% recycled



I am trying to make a (small) carpet fom old t-shirts and some wool. It's the first time I try a thing like this and although it doesn't go very fast it is fun to do!

Nett! Dafür fehlt mir immer die Geduld, aber es sieht sehr kuschlig aus...

Oh das gefällt mir sehr! Aber es würde mir wohl auch an Geduld fehlen :)

Wunderbar! Will ich natürlich gleich nachmachen.
Aber: wie verbindest du die verschiedenen T-Shirt Stränge miteinander? Nähen? Verschlingen?

This is fantastic! I have been looking for a rug to make that I liked and that I thought I was capable of - I think this is it! Thanks for a great idea!!

Hello from Albuquerque, New Mexico USA! I love your idea and would like to try it on a small scale using thin strips of denim and leftover embroidery floss to make coasters. Do you know where I can find directions for the technique? I must be googling the wrong thing because I'm not finding any. Thank you!
