WOYWW #519

Hello Fellow Deskers,

Sorry I've been AWOL for so long I can't even remember how many weeks, but I'm looking forward to catching up with some of you over the next couple of days. I know there's a big WOYWW 10th Anniversary celebration coming up - I SO wish I could make it and meet you all in person, but I will have to content myself with watching from the wings.

The sun's been shining today, so I've been crafting in the garden - my current obsession is turning old T-shirts into rag rugs ...


Those balls of "yarn" were made from T-shirts I had for years, worn them to the point where it would have been embarrassing to take them to the charity shop, but this way I get to turn them into something useful AND I'm not really letting these old friends go :o)

I'll be back after work to link up over at Julia's and have a snout around to see what everyone else has been up to this week - see you there!

Love Annie xxx

You always have the best upcycling projects, Annie! I would have never thought that rug was made from old T-shirts! Lovely colours too! Were you tempted to cut up a good T-shirt just to get the right colour LOL?

Gosh I can remember mum making rag rugs all those years ago - some crafts stick around for a long time. Looking at what you are doing with your t-shirts I am tempted to think that it would make a lovely shopping bag. You could go any size. Or would it be too thick?

I'm not sure you can call that a RAG rug, Annie. That is a lovely rug and great recycling project, too. Happy WOYWW from #2.

I remember my Mother making rag rugs like this about 50 years ago, so everything old is new ago. Your colours are gorgeous together and what a great way to decrease what goes into land fill.
