This beautiful crochet rug didn’t cost a penny but it looks like a million bucks!  Create a one-of-a-kind rug from old sheets and t-shirts like this one on Damsel & Baron. What a awesome way to recycle and make your home extra comfy!  Got an old duvet cover?  Time to get started on a rug of your own.  There’s no need to head out to the store for supplies…ya gotta love that!

    No instructions are needed guys… it’s easy. Chain until you get the desired width you want, then turn and single crochet (SC) in the 2nd chain from the hook, and continue across… ch 1, turn and sc across again. Continue until you get the length you want. That simple.

    Can you please share how you cut up the Tshirts, and how wide the strips are that you cut? Also, how do you attach the new pieces of Tshirt material when you run out? Thankyou so much! I just love the colors of your rug! It looks awesome:)

    If you click on the Damsel & Baron website it has the directions. The problem is you have to figure out what language it is so you can go to Google translate. Any idea what language it is? Would appreciate any suggestions.

    I went to Google translate and I guessed that it was Danish, I don’t know why, but I was right. And no there aren’t any directions.

    It is easy to knit the tshirt fabric as well. O have used the cut material to knit cushion covers on the diagonal starting with 3 stitches and increasing once on every row until as big as you want the cushion the decreasing. I join the strips using the slit method and looping the fabric through. The strips were about an inch wide and I used 12 mm needles. if you want it tighter use 10 mm ones. Hope this helps to use those marked or stretched tshirts.

    To strip sheets firsts cut off the “sewed edges” make 2 inch wide cuts about 6 inches long. Then rip the rest of the way!
