I cut many orange t-shirts into little continuous strips and crocheted them into a rug.  Orange is my favorite color.  It's complete but I envision adding to it as I get more t-shirts. Bag day at the rummage sale, here I come...

So you made t-shirt yarn!  I love it!  How big is your rug?  I bet you could put some backing on it (if needed) to keep it from slipping!  GIANT fan of orange! Smiley

Thank you!  Right now it's about a yard by half a yard, I need to make it bigger.  It hurts my thumb a bit to work it so I need a bit of a break.
