A braided rug posie made from braiding 3 strands of t-shirt yarn together. I glued it onto a cardboard base in a spiral pattern and topped it off with a button. The leaves are made from excess t-shirt parts (sleeves and upper body) that were fused together using Heat 'n Bond before cutting leaf shapes from it. The leaves were then topped stitched by hand.
The other, a single strand of t-shirt yarn glued to a cardboard base in a spiral pattern. It was also topped with a button and 2 leaves made from excess t-shirt parts. The leaves were then topped stitched by sewing machine.
Braiding t-shirt yarn is fun to do. All along, I kept thinking of what a beautiful and durable rug or basket this would make. If you are interest in making t-shirt yarn, please see my tutorial here.
Something slightly different...4-ply worsted yarn and fluffy eyelash yarn held together while being crocheted with a size I hook into a loose chain before being glued into a spiral pattern onto a cardboard base.
For this flower, I chose some vintage velvet leaves for a slightly dressier look. I absolutely adore it.
Have a fabulous, flower-filled day!
