Ready to make a braided rug!

I would like to try making a rag rug by braiding fabric.  I had some old t-shirts that I cut into 1 1/2 - 2 inch wide strips.  Each shirt gave me a pretty long piece to braid with.  I am just not sure where to start.
here are the t-shirt balls I made.....
I have this basket filled with about a dozen balls.  I cut the t-shirts into a continuous strip so they are pretty long.
I will check back later to show you what I do with these if I can figure out how to make the rug.
If anyone has any ideas, please let me know


  1. You are one crafty woman. My grandma used to make braided rugs. I have no idea how she did it. Keep us posted on your progress.

  2. The colors are great! I've never tried a braided rug myself, but I've watched friends do it. They just look so neat and traditional.

  3. BeeBee there's a tutorial here that's really good, give it a go...
