The Pink Rug Project

Just a quick blog on this new rug.

I wanted to make it totally from reclaimed t-shirts, as they are easy to cut, easy to prod, and feel lovely under the toes when you stand on the rug  :)

I chose pink colours, as this was a gift for my sister, and I actually started with three t-shirts she had given me to chop up, although she didn't realise that I would be starting a rug for her out of them.

In the end it took 30 t-shirts to complete, I trailed the charity shops and begged them from friends and neighbours.  There is even a starry patterned nighty in there!!!

A regular style t-shirt (Short sleeved) takes around half an hour to chop up into pieces, then about an hour to prod all the pieces into the hessian, and it makes about 1-2" in rug!!  So you can imagine a good few hours went into this project.

The rug is around a meter long by half a meter wide.

Mad Summer Sort Out.

Every so often I feel I need to clear everything out and start again, otherwise my mojo seems to get stale and repetitive.

So that is exactly what I am going to do  :)  .......... hopefully!

I have just thrown open my display cabinet, took everything out and I am going to put photos on Facebook of all the items with suggested prices.  If you fancy anything just yell  :)

Oh, and to thank you for bothering to read this I will do a giveaway for this chocolate & lime bracelet.

All you have to do is comment on this blog to get an entry into the prize draw.

If you would be so very kind as to share my Facebook page on your wall, I will add you into a second prize draw to win this cute red netted bracelet  :)

All you have to do is let me know you have shared and I will do the rest.
