Finished Peacock Inspired Rug

I am in love with this 5 ft round rug that I recently finished. I was inspired by the colors of a peacock and wanted to loosely stay to that color palette. It took me about 2 months to complete but it was during the holidays so it could have been completed earlier. I used 24 t-shirts to make this rug and had very little excess left over as I often just continued on with a certain color until it was 3

This rug is made entirely of cotton t-shirts that I found at local thrift stores. I am having fun exploring the color possibilities and any idea, like a peacock feather or a sunset or a flower, would make a good starting point for a rug. If you are going to thrift stores yourself looking for material, bring a reference image with you as you are choosing the t-shirts to buy.

Hope you like this rug as much as I do!IMG_7452

Happy Rugmaking,
