I wanted to make a rug out of old junky t-shirts, but I am waaay too lazy to make it by poking it through holes of latch hook rug canvas like this one http://members.cox.net/dtabor1/White%20Prodded%20Rug.htm
. So I sewed strips about 1"x5" onto regular canvas hemmed about 14" x 22" that I had drawn pencil lines (1" apart) on. This was so easy and much faster. I should probably put something under so it isn't slippery.
