Braided Rug Tutorial: Recycling old towels
I had 3 bath towels that had stains on them, but otherwise were in really good shape so I decided to turn them into my next project.
I folded each towel in half and cut into 1.5 in strips.
I cut up each towel. They were all about the same size towel.
I am sure many of you are saying "where is her rotary cutter?" I don't have one so I did this old school.
Once everything is cut I sewed 3 strips, one of each color together.
Then get those fingers warmed up because there was A LOT of braiding going on. I folded the raw edges to the inside to minimize freying.
After you braid one set of strips you sew on another. and another ...and another Until you have a giant long braided rope of towels.
I then twisted the center and wrapped it around as I hand stiched the rows into place.
I stiched it all together on the back with a heavy duty needle and some thread and then your are finished.
Have a great DAY!!
