Who would have believed that with a hula hoop and some old t-shirts you can make a children's rug? It's a great and very creative FamilyFun idea, easy to do and fun, and kids are going to love it. We are going to see how to make a rug with colored shirts with the images in this excellent craft tutorial for the whole family.
Surely you know the hula hoops or hula hopo that are used for gymnastics or for fun, rolling them on the waist. If you have a hula hoop at home and some old colored t-shirts, pay attention to make a rug or a rug for the children's bedroom with these two elements.
To make a carpet with a 90-centimeter diameter hula hoop, you need 12 medium-sized t-shirts.
Cut the jerseys into strips about 3 centimeters wide to form the warp, which will be the strips positioned radially, like the spokes of a bicycle wheel.
Wrap the strip of fabric around the hoop as you can see in the image. You must complete 12 laps.
Once you have the warp formed, cut the shirts to begin weaving the weft. To do this, use the remaining shirts and select them by color to combine them and form the design of the rug.
Tie a strip of shirt over the center of the warp and begin to pass it through the successive strips, up and down, around the hoop.
In this way you will have to turn the hula and hula and weave the weft with the shirt strips.
On each round, you go over the strip on each warp where you knitted down on the previous round, and so on.
