No-Sew T-shirt Rag Rug

So this morning I woke up like I had good sense or something because I decided to pull an idea off of Pinterest. Now people say it is "simple" and I did finish it BUT I'm almost embarrassed to mention how long it took to complete. Yeah, they don't mention the hours you're going to invest for a unique, one-of-a-kind rag rug,  I WILL

About five hours to be exact, from start to finish, for a rug that measures 2 feet by 3 feet. My advice, BUY ONE. For those of you that are brave, with nothing more than time and spare t-shirts on your hands (much like myself)..... here are the steps that resulted in a 2ft by 3ft rug.

How to Make a T-shirt Shag Rug

4 size 2XL t-shirts
measuring tape
razor knife
Did I mention lots of spare time?

1. Make the base of the rug.
For the base of the rug, lay one 2XL t-shirt flat and cut a large rectangle out of the shirt.

2. Make scraps.
Use scissors to cut the remaining t-shirts (use the leftovers from the base shirt too) into strips that are approximately 8’’ long and 1-1 ½’’ wide. Lots of other blogs say shorter, but I can't tell you how many pieces I wasted cutting smaller strips. If you have a rotary cutter and board, things go faster. I did not. I only used clean edges and cut away all seams.

3. Cut holes into the base.
If you want perfection, starting 1’’ from the edge of the base on all sides, carefully poke or snip horizontal and vertical rows of small holes about 1/2 ’’ to 2/3’’ inches apart. I tried doing this with scissors and had bad results. I ended up using a razor knife, out back on our patio. I made my cuts as I went along row by row, there was no ruler involved and my rug turned out fine. You will see the tape, but that was for your reference, not mine.

4. Start threading scraps into the base.
Beginning at one corner, thread a strip down through the first hole and back up through the second. Take a second scrap and thread it through the second hole (the same hole you just pulled the first scrap up through) so that it shares this hole with the first scrap, and then pull it up through the third hole. Continue doing this for a very, very long time… I spent a good portion of 3 hours doing this.

5. Give your rug a trim.
I felt this was an unneeded step, therefor I skipped it. I had already wasted enough time.
They say it's very easy to maintain, but you'll never be able to wash it, after all nothing is holding anything in place, literally. I assure you it will fall apart at some point. Until then, it looks cute and does fluff nicely.
