"More Purpleness" by songofjoy7 (Carol), via Flickr. Another t-shirt rag rug, braided with four-inch wide strips. Beautiful! I would bet that it is sewn together through the braid loops, rather than zig-zag stitched on one side. That (at least) doubles the life of the rug, because you can use both sides. It also works with the nature of the fabric. Stick with similar t-shirt weights.
