How I Weave Old Socks and T-shirts Into Rag Rugs

If you follow Trashmagination, you know that I make rugs from t-shirts called fluffy rugs. Each of those recycles about 50+ t-shirts. I can make t-shirt yarn and “fluffies” from all the parts except the collars, cuffs and waistbands. This project uses up those bits, plus it also uses up worn out socks. The only tools you need are scissors and a basic loom – mine is made from a large wooden frame that I found in the trash. I made this rug in about three hours. Hopefully this inspires you to use up your socks and maybe t-shirts leftover from making t-shirt yarn.
