T-shirt recycling

At long last I have put to use the many old t-shirts I had saved in the past few years.
I have removed the seams and with the remaining fabric I made first strips that I then cut in sections of about 12-15 cm by about 5 cm.

I have used an old towel as a base. I drew lines with a sharpie and stitched folded pieces of the t-shirts all along the lines.

The result is a thick nice bath mat. It is on the heavy side and should I do it again I would dye the towels a dark color as the orange sometimes peeks out from the pile.
