What materials did you use? Recycled old ratty T-shirts

What are you most proud of? I recently taught two groups of children, around 40 in all to make a simple rag rug out of old t-shirts, it was a very successful project.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start collecting and have quite a few t-shirts ready because once you start it comes together quickly. Cut t-shirts in strips, join with either knots or a few stitches, braid and tack stitch together to form a circle or oval shape

Hi lisonbouffard@hotmail.ca and Lori, instructions on this project have been posted in earlier comments, but it is quite easy to do. Cut t-shirts into strips, in a spiral starting at the bottom (see photo at top) once you have cut a few t-shirts, braid and then lay on a flat surface to stitch, I have lead groups of children through this project, it is easy and addictive, have fun

What do you use to sew it all together?

I just used plain cotton thread, this is a great, really easy project, if you can braid you can do this, instructions have been posted a few times in the comments, but I will remember to post instructions in the details in the future, I didnt think to do that. Sorry for any confusion
