About the Item

Add a little love to any room in your house with this cheery heart rug.

I crocheted this one of a kind (OOAK) rug with yarn I hand-cut from salvaged fabric. I collected several t shirts from thrift stores and was given some t shirt scraps by Krista Lawhon who makes great t-shirt blankets: http://www.etsy.com/shop/KristaLawhon I washed the fabric and cut it up into strips that I used to crochet this rug. Using fabric yarn creates a rug that is thick and soft yet very very durable. The shirts were all heather gray, but have slight variations.

The heart applique is my own design and was cut from a red t-shirt. I attached it to the rug with a fabric bonding agent and then hand-stitched around the edge.

This rug is machine washable and dryable. It measures 28 inches (63.5 cm) in diameter. Perfect for the bathroom, kitchen, office, living room, bedroom, playroom, nursery, dorm room, or any other room that needs a nice rug or mat.

Additionally, dogs and cats love to sit on these rugs! This rug would make a great pet mat to put on the sofa, a table, or your pet’s favorite place to hang out.
