What do you do when school is closed and you have an insatiable talent for up-cycling fabric into fabulous creations?

UPDATE May 24: Even more t-shirt rugs looking for a home
I am, at this moment caught up with all the old tired t-shirts. The t-shirts in these rugs, like most that I’ve used, were donated by Quakers. The Rainbow Restaurant t-shirts came from Sarah. My uniform shirts from 2001 when I started with PSD.

Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will figure out the logistics if you’d like to take one of these rugs home.
