You may recall I talked about potholder rugs back in early February, back before the world stumbled. Well, I’m back at them!
I made one for my sister…
This one I called the Continental… it reminds me of the colors of the Continental Army, navy blue, tan, and white with red accents. I traded this to my sister for another spectacular sewing project she did for me. I told her I’d make her a third section, which will make this fit across the tailgate of her pickup as a seat cushion or rug.
If you remember from my first post, these rugs are made from up cycled tshirts, keeping the tshirts from the landfill and giving them new life. They’re soft, washable, and great for sitting on, standing on, or even sleeping on!
Now that I’m back to being creative, I’m getting excited. My “Sunrise” rug came next… and “Denim” is not far behind!
For those of you who donated your XL tshirts to the cause, THANK YOU! It makes me happy that these little chair cushions/rugs/mats, whatever job you might want to give them, came from what otherwise would be considered garbage.
I also found out today that my local thrift store sells big boxes of tshirts they can’t sell for $5! Now, they’re a mix of sizes and colors, but I’ll just work with what I get. I can’t use smaller ones yet, but maybe I just need to build a smaller loom!
