DIY No Sew Braided T-shirt Rug!

posted in Various
  • You will need:

    A variety of jersey t-shirts or tank tops
    Scissors or rotary cutter

  • How to:

    Cut your t shirts into 1.5" strips along the width of the body. You will want to cut them so they're strands and not loops of fabric.

    Gather three strips and stack them. Tie a knot tightly into the top to begin. Start braiding the strips.

  • Once you've braiding about 4" of the strips, coil the braid into a circle as shown in the picture, with the knot in the center.

  • Take the strand closest to the center and pass it under and trough one of the loops in the brain you could. This is how you will attach the brain to the coil!

  • Continue to braid another few inches.

  • Every few inches, pass the strand closest to the center under and though the existing braid to attach it. Do this until you create the entire rug!

    How to add strips:
    When you read the end of the strip, You'll want to attach another end. Instead of making a bunch of knots, you can quickly attach the next strand with these steps!

  • Fold over the very end of the attached strand and cut a small skit into the center. Do the same with your new strand

    Line up the two slits you cut on both strands.

    Take the other end of the new strand and pull it through the back of the slits towards the front

    Pull both strands tightly and they will be linked together.

  • To finish the backing of the rug so it stays in place, iron some fusible interfacing to the reverse side!
