Monday Making

What do YOU do with old t-shirts?
I made some t-shirt yarn.....
used some crochet thread....

and wove a bath mat.

My daughter recently moved and requested a little mat for her new home.
Nothing fancy.
Just a little rug.

I WILL say...
Handmade is such a satisfying pursuit!
I'm happy to add something homemade to her new house!


I also did a little quilting.
Using the book "The American Quilt- a history of  cloth and comfort"
by Roderick Kiracof,...
I made a little table topper.

Maybe I'll make some more squares
and turn it into a longer table runner.😉

Love the colors!!

What are YOU making this week??

  1. What a fun and practical housewarming gift! (I can imagine the design as a quilt...but don't we see quilt designs in everything?)

  2. How cool is that. I take it that is a "real" loom, not a couple of boards with nails in it? (Note to self... you do NOT need another hobby.) I really like the finished rug. (And a good use of old t shirts.)

  10. Hi Beth, I love your bath mat. How wide did you cut your t-shirts. Is there a trick to cutting them? When I retire, my loom will come out - and the bath mat I made 30 some years ago is dead. I would love to make another and t-shirt fabric would be awesome. Thanks!

  12. your table topper will be very striking when done. and you have a loom! (I always wanted one, took a class, but with my very poor math skills had trouble with the accurateness of my lengthwise grain!)
