What are you most proud of? The up-cycling of something we have so many of - I hate to throw anything away. I have always been a "saver" and love finding new uses for old or worn out things. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Collect as many t-shirts as you can, cut them and roll them as you get them. It always takes more than you think so save as many as you can get your hands on. This rug took 22 t-shirts of varying sizes.
