Number 33: Make a rip rug

What to do with all those old t-shirts?  Throw them away?  Nah...too wasteful.  Turn them into rags?  You can only have so many rags.  So, I looked for something better!  And found this tutorial on making rip rugs.  
You can also use any other old fabric like old bed sheets or towels or whatever.  This rip rug was made out of a pair of Christmas themed fleece pajamas.  The fabric was too thick to put under the sewing machine, so I had to sew it by hand, but it turned out good.  Nice and soft and comfy.  Just perfect for putting your feet down on when you get out of bed in the morning or good for the dog to curl up on.

This rug was a little too tedious, so I've decided to try this method instead. http://www.craftpassion.com/2010/03/recycle-tutorial-woven-rag-rug.html

I've got one almost finished.  Maybe I'll work on it today!
