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.

When I helped my great granny (I was about 9) make a rag rug she let me work on the tacking. I remember using a very heavy duty thread. I think upholstery thread or the heavier fishing line since these threads are more durable than regular sewing thread. I found these more suitable when repairing the antique rugs for historic homes or museums and even the antique rugs that people just wanted for their own homes..

This project is a very useful for bonding with your children or grandchildren. For me I was a great-grandchild and learned so many things that were and had been lost in time. Whether it turns out good or bad, you've bonded with that special person, laugh about it and enjoy that time together. This brings the true enjoyment in your heart and mind long after the other isn't around anymore.
