Make a crochet rug out of old T-shirts

By Alice Arndell
This cosy crochet rug is perfect for playtime, and is made from worn-out clothes - what better way to teach kids about being eco-friendly? It's not a speedy project, so let it be your new relaxation technique. It's good to do while you're sitting in front of the TV. And there's no reason why your rug can't "grow" - you can just cut, crochet and stitch any extra unwanted shirts to your existing rug.
What you need:
  • Old T-shirts
  • Scissors
  • 8 mm crochet needle
  • Needle and cotton
