My Crochet Today Recycled Trivet / Pet Mat / Hot Pad

I love the way this came out. It was a lot of work, but i'm very pleased with it. 
It would be great not only as a trivet for your table, but as a pet rug for a small dog or cat.

This rug is made from recycled t-shirts which were purchased from my local thrift store that supports the area food banks and charities.The second picture shows the back of the trivet.It has a raised stitch so depending on your preference, either side can be displayed.

The t shirts where cleaned, cut into strips and then crocheted into this pretty trivet.
