Because I have so much time on my hands....

I've decided to make a rug for the girl's room.  Latch hook.  Out of old t-shirts that I have to find, buy, and then cut up into tiny pieces.  It's going to take forever.  Good thing I like a challenge!  I was telling friends about it today, and they wanted a picture when I was done.  Since that might be awhile, I was told to take a picture now.  I came home and counted my rows.  I've done 5 in two days.  It takes about 2 hours for me to do two rows. 

I'm really excited to see the finished project.  It's looking really good so far!  I don't have a set pattern for colors, I just put all of my pieces in a bag, then without looking I pull one out.  I find I'm less anal that way about it being perfect.  The colors I picked were white, pink, and teal.  (The colors of the girl's room)  So...if any of my wonderful readers ~ especially the ones that know me ~ have t-shirts that they wouldn't mind getting cut up, let me know, I'll take them off your hands!  Oh, one more thing...guess where I found this idea?  ;)

The rug will be this big when it's finished.  What a long way I have left to go!

  1. Good luck! I started a latch hook once. It was with yarn and a pattern. A horse head. I never finished. I finally got rid of it. Some NUTs are worth keeping around, some just aren't!

  2. I love the colour combination! I just might have one or two older pink ones that are too big for me now that I can part with!! :) I know you'll finish this one too. You go girl!

  3. I will check my toss pile to. What a great idea. You are so crafty.

  4. I really wanted to do one of these. Some day... some day.
