100% recycled t-shirt potholder rug

I finally finished up my recycled t-shirt potholder rug that I started last August. You can see when I started here and here and here.

So by my calculations-about 10 red t-shirts, 630 loopers, 35 potholders and 1 callus make a new rug for in front of my kitchen sink.

I stitched the potholders together with thin strips of t-shirt and a large needle. I hope it will stand up to washing-it will need it quite often.

I think it turned out great!☺

Way too groovy Holly. When i first looked at it i though "no way you made that"
Then i realised.... Holly can make anything!

love this! It looks textured and kind-of bumpy, which, I imagine would feel great under foot. :)
