Hi, I have this idea to use a piece of the "backing" that you would use for
making a latch hooked rug only to hook it with cut up pieces of t shirt
material in bright colors. I don't have a piece of latch hook backing to try
this on and nowhere in my city can I buy a "piece". I can only buy a whole kit
which I don't want. I was thinking about doing this as a class project. Has
anyone tried this? I was also wondering if you could then throw it in the
washer and dryer? Woudl it all hold together? I thought it would be more fun to
do than regular yarn.
Any suggestions are welcome.
Thank you

A friend of mine has made some lovely T-shirt hooked rugs.  But I'm
afraid I don't know how she does them.  Just thought I'd say that it
does work.

As a sometime Latchooker, yes, you can throw it into the washer, but I
wouldn't suggest the dryer, unless it was on air dry only.  JoAnns
actually sells latch-hook material (I think I've seen it with the window
treatments and/or the decorating fabric).

You can buy large-mesh canvas by the yard at fabric stores.
