I actually finished this a few weeks ago, but life happened. I was reminded of it every time I took a shower, but blogging while naked just didn’t seem right. Especially the pictures…there are many reflective surfaces in a bathroom and ain’t nobody wanting to see that.
Turns out I was able to take pics without reflections anyway.
I made this rug out of necessity and frustration. The shower in our bathroom has a swing out door. There was just no way to keep the floor from getting wet when the shower door was opened.
I looked everywhere for a rug that would work. The dimensions for the space were pretty specific, but nobody makes rugs that size. I happened to be working with some t-shirts at the time and a light bulb went off. Why not crochet a rug to custom fit the area?
I went through my stash of t-shirts and cut “yarn” in colors that would blend with the room. The walls of the room are green so green t-shirts were a must. Matching the greens to the walls while still using the tees I had was impossible. That’s okay, I would have gone nuts crocheting this in one color. I added some grays and white to add interest and to save my sanity.
I don’t have formal instructions for this project, as its size was for my specific space, but I will give you the broad strokes.
The center section was done in rows using single crochet in the back loops. I crocheted a few rows of each color–lathered, rinsed and repeated until the section was a few inches from the shower and the wall when centered in front of the door.
