If you want to protect the environment, you will most certainly be fond of this idea of making your own bath rug out of old shirts, or just any type of old clothing. The most important thing is that the fabric should have the capacity of retaining water. (This does not mean that you can’t make a rug for any other room in the house, if you find the idea inspiring, and you have enough old clothes).
You will need:
– old towels/old shirts;
– rug making base with large squares.
Directions: Cut the fabrics in strips of 1 cm wide and 10 cm length (this last dimension will set the height of the rug). After you’ve done cutting the fabric, you can start the work. Pass one strip through two squares and tie in the middle. Our example is simple monochrome, but you can go crazy and think of some print you can play with and use the colors as you like. Think about using geometric shapes, stripes, circles, flowers or an animal print. The rug making base you can find in any crafts shops. Enjoy!
