I bought a packet of rug webbing (one package was enough for 2 2'x3' rugs)
and a package of rug binding. Sewing the binding to the edge of the webbing is very easy...
Then...just collect all the tee shirts you can find...
I think I used 9 for this rug...and cut into 1"x 4" strips
(a rotary cutter is SUPER valuable)
I cut a template out of card stock and used it as an aid
to make the cutting go faster
Cut off the hem
then just cut row after row of 1" strips
then cut the opposite direction to make them 4" long
Start feeding either end of the tee shirt strip through the
webbing. (initially I did every square...but the rug
became too thick and heavy so I did every other row)
It's very time consuming...but definitely something
you can do watching tv
see the darker square on the lower left corner
of the rug...ugh...thats from a pretty old dingy shirt...
may have to change that out.
