Stash Bash!

It's time for the Stash Bash!! 

I am joining in on Crunchy Catholic Momma's weekly Stash Bash cause you know us crafters have our stashes! lol  It is my goal this year to use up some of mine and to actually finish (or start! ha!) these projects that I have been stashing materials for! lol There are just too many great ideas and not enough hours in the day!! So I have to remind myself to stay focused!!



This project is no different....I first saw it in a Family Fun magazine. What a great idea to make a rug out of old t-shirts!! I must admit that we bought the hoola hoops for this one MONTHS ago... ok last summer ... and I've been collecting t-shirts off the share table at our homeschool co-op and MOMS club for months too.... well, my stash was beginning to take up way too much room in my closet so it was time to take the leap and start cutting!!
















 I so love using cast away clothing for new projects but SO hate that first cut! lol


I couldn't believe how long she worked on this without complaining!! :) She worked so hard on it and it is progressing so nicely!!  I'll post more pictures when she gets it done! This is going to look so nice in my kitchen!! :)

That is a super cute idea. Hmm - have hula hoops. Have way too many old t-shirts.

How do you cut them? And how do you finish off the ends?

Ha...I also have a stack of t-shirts set aside for a rug. It was going to be my March project...looks like it will have to be my spring/summer project as I haven't started to cut them up. Yours/hers looks great so far. Can't wait to see the finished project.

Oh my goodness.. my 15 year old little sister was just talking about this family fun project! I followed you here from FrontierDreams. This week, my craftiness led to a mama-made dress for BabySister due in early July. http://likemamalikedaughter.blogspot.com/2012/03/squirrelys-nutty-brown-owl-dress.html

Saaaweeeettt! Love it! I want to do that...now if God only gives me more hours in the day! LOL but that is so cool!

These are so much fun!!! My daughter and I did one, almost exactly a year ago!!! Except be sure to follow the instructions near the end, they switch around the way you weave a little bit. I didn't notice the wording until after ours was coming apart and we had to re-weave it. Oops.

That is such a neat idea! :)

ive croched a rug before but never seen one made like this, what fun and what fun you can have with the hoop afterwards too as a bonus:)
