Jacky's Craft Camp - Day 1 - Hula Hoop Rugs

This week I am hosting "Jacky's Craft Camp."  I do this for our 4-H club and others who ask to come.  Today was Day 1 - Hula Hoop Rugs.  I saw this idea on pinterest here:  Here are a few pictures of us making our rugs.  

You make this out of old t-shirts.  Lay out your shirt and mark it every 1".  Cut across the shirt and make the strips you will weave with.  Stretch 11 strips around a hula hoop - your loom - and tie on one strip with a loop knot.  Keep adding your t-shirt loops with a loop knot.  Then weave - over, under.  Her directions are really good.

The kids took home their unfinished projects to keep working on.  Really fun recycle project.  Day 2 - tomorrow.

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
