Recycled T Shirt Rainbow Rug

I made this great recycled t shirt rainbow rug for Earth Day, and I wanted to share it with you as another great idea for recycling old or thrifted t shirts.

Each round is made from part of a cut t shirt. I used t shirts in 14 different colors, and saved the left overs for other t shirt yarn projects.

Here's the t shirts before being processed into strips. This time I cut strips across the width of the shirt at a slight angle, and broke the strips at the weak point, overlapping to join.

I love using old things to make new and beautiful items, especially when they have a lot of vibrancy and color like this item. What will you make with t shirt yarn?
