T-shirt is one of the coolest material to make fabric projects. Scarfs, baskets, poufs, and rugs. You can find inspirations everywhere but up till now I thought I will have to use my hook to create anything out of an old t-shirt. I was wrong and I am happy with that! I know that this tool isn’t something that we all have at home but is not that difficult to buy it nowadays.
Hula Hoop Rug may sound crazy but you wouldn’t have to spin it on your hips to weave this colorful rug. For Handimaniac like you it will be a piece of cake I bet, and so fun too. Awesome step by step project, as shown here on Spoonful, waiting for your creativity to burst. If you are not in the mood, take out your boyfriend’s black t-shirts and make this rug gravelly. The happiest person you are, cut your own t-shirts and make it rainbow like.
There are many variations and this hoola hoop weaving technique could also do with other kinds of thick yarns. The round shape could also be of different sizes and make a foundation (bottom) for a toy basket that you can crochet later. If it is not too big, two pieces will make two sides of knitted bag…and so on. Upcycle your t-shirts to Hoola Hop Rug or anything else and share it on our facebook.
