Hahaha! Funny thing that this topic just came up again. Yesterday I had an urge to do something creative so I decided to try my own twined rug. This one is with t-shirt material.  
It's not really on a loom, it's a wooden frame that I found in the scrap pile that I wrapped t-shirt cord around. But so far it's looking pretty good!
