I started working on this braided rug about 3 weeks ago; it's taking me much longer than I expected, but I want it done, so I've been working on it feverishly!
It's a big spiral of braided t-shirt yarn (t-shirts cut into strips [tutorial]), sewn together with red thread.
It makes me feel a connection with women/families of long ago who made things out of necessity, before the days of store-bought rugs (and everything else)...all my meticulously saved fabric scraps are being put to use.
I also hate the sight of my apartment's old, ugly carpet, so I wanna make this thing as big as possible to cover it!
(I found this old framed embroidery and stitched on some extra creepiness;
it's hanging above our bed now.)
