Everyone has a moment when they hate to throw away completely useful items that have stood the test of time... Recently we ran across a blogger who put together a tutorial on how to recycle old tees. Brilliant! We had bags of white tee shirts that were on the way to the garbage and voila! A brand new shag rug for the bathroom was born! Read here how to make your own, with no sewing, basting or glue. FYI, we used an equally old towel as the backing for a more stable structure and it turned out great! Recycling at its absolute BEST! And the pets love it!
