This is a great idea for someone who has the time to make but not the money to purchase. I really want to tackle this one. Although I think I could probably get a great result by skipping the dying process and just collecting an array of shirts of the same color with different hues. I think I may try this for my girls' room. The only thing that I wonder about: How do you vacuum/clean it? This is the reason I've never purchased any shag rugs.
