(weekend diy) Crochet fabric yarn circle rug

CROCHETRUGPATTERN1
I've been working on this rug for a couple of weeks now. I'm excited to finally share it with you!!! It was a work in progress since I needed to collect the right color of t-shirts as I worked. I made the rug the colors of my bedroom decor which is yellow, white and gray. The pattern is very similar to the base of the basket I created, just on a larger scale!

Supplies needed:
Fabric Yarn (here is my T-shirt Yarn tutorial)
Any fabric strips will work however. I used approximately 18 t-shirts.
15MM Crochet hook
Stitch Markers
Large Yarn Needle
Scissors

For my rug I used each t-shirt until I ran out. If you want a more even stripe to your rug, start and stop a different color at the beginning of a round.

Place a marker at your first stitch to remember your rounds.

  1. Beautiful rug! I'm so jealous that you're able to make things like this. I am sewing/crocheting illiterate, to put it nicely. ;)

    1. I got a lot of my at rummage sales! Churches in my area have $1 bag sales the last couple hours of a rummage sale. They can still make money at their sales, but are stuck with a lot of stuff. I find tons of t-shirts there!!
