Here's a photo of a multicolored rug that was made awhile back, from t-shirts ( leftover strips) and is quite short.
This one is made from sweatshirts. When I started it, was also putting red in there, but it seemed too patriotic for a rug, as the light grey looks more white than grey. The one below is the denim/camoflaug rug I talked about in an earlier post that was remade from another rug that was hemmed and came apart after washing.

So it was taken off and the loom rewarped for the last two place mats. That went well, for once and then I realized that I didn't have enough material to finish them! So a trip to Good Will and the other thrift shops with one of our daughters commenced.
Well, we couldn't just buy the t-shirts to finish up, could we? We found books, fashion boots, a jacket, and many clothes for my little grandson. In Good Will it was an adventure, scouring the racks holding the fabric strips to compare. We did match the colors, amazingly enough. And here are the end results. Hope the next adventure is easier and less costly.
