The fun part of reorganizing my craft room is making these little projects from left overs that I just can not find a place for any more.
The weird thing is that I have saved all this stuff up to make projects with and now I am trying to find a place for them…… It is getting a bit ridicules to be organizing projects I want to make, some day?
Why not do it NOW?
The organizing is taking a so much more time like this but I feel the need to clean every thing out and make room for new ideas. I am a bit smothered with "old" ideas that never came to live.
So with the T-shirts I saved up I made this rug. It will return to my room but no longer is taking up space in a box. It is now going to be on the floor underneath the table, and add a bit of color to the room.
It took me 19 T-shirts and 3 nights to make this one. It´s just the simplest stitch there is and there is no special pattern for it. I just started with no plan of how big it was going to be.
The colors are also very random and I cut up a T-shirt when I finished another.
I started cutting at the bottom (took off the seem) and going a bit diagonal all the way up till the armpits. It´s an about 3 cm wide strip and pulled it and then rolled it into a ball. I just went with the new color as I would have if it was one "thread" so I used a needle and thread to fasten the loose ends underneath.
And used a hook which says 9.0 mm. ( but its from a china store, so it could be any size!)
It is a bit of hard work with the ones that were a bit old and stiff. So my thumb and index finger nails are a bit sore but I love how it turned out. It´s heavy and sturdy.
I still have a few T-shirts left….
So started a new one. It´s gonna be made of 8 T-shirts so half as big as the other one but in my favorite color combination, pink and blue.
I have a thing for this color combo, I don´t know why, I always want to touch it whenever I see it somewhere. And if I was all by myself I probably would have it everywhere! But I do not live by myself so…… Just this little rug in my room is going to have to do.
The sacrifices a girl has to make :-)
Do you have the same interior that you would have if you would be living alone?
