Recycled T-Shirt… Bowl?

Today, I attempted to make a rag rug out of cut t-shirts, using a hula hoop as a frame to weave the pieces. It was looking really good as I was weaving it, but I could see the trouble as I started to clip the edges. Somehow I had weaved the outside much tighter than the inside, causing the outside of the rug to pull up into a bowl-like shape. My rag rug is now a rag bowl. It’s cute, but not what I was going for.

Editor’s note: you could make it into a pouf!

    Hey, do you have cats or do you know anyone who has? They’ll love this cuddly bowl as a bed.
    And cats are very tolerant with anything soft enough to sleep in.
