How To Make A T Shirt Rag Rug
"This is a simple rag rug that you can make any size, shape and colour you choose. I used an old towel and old t-shirts but again you can choose your own fabric. All you need is the fabric, scissors and a sewing machine. You don't have to measure or cut anything with any accuracy, a great beginner sewers project. I used this rag rug in the kitchen - the towel backing is great for mopping up any small water spills! But it's super soft and would make a great rug for a kids room too. The longest part of the process is cutting all the squares. "
