T-Shirt Rugs/Bowls

Making rag rugs can be very therapeutic.  All you need is some old t-shirts (as many as you can gather), and one of our awesome looms.  Check out some of the rugs we made last year, here.

Check out this awesome video for an overview of how to make your rag rug.


There are a couple ways to make the yarn.  You can either cut the shirts in one long strand like shown in this DIY.  Another possibility is looping like shown in the video.  Here is a link to a DIY for looping, you’ll need to scroll about halfway down the page.


  • T-shirts
  • Loom

Already attempted a rug?  Check out these awesome bowls and try your hand at making one.  Not sure how to do the stitching?  They are a lot like rope coil bowls.
