Rag Rugs

The first rug is my first attempt. As you can see I needed to connect my strips differently. I ended up calling it my butterfly rug from all the ends sticking out. The 2nd one turned out much better. These two are made with sheets cut into 1 1/2 to 2 inch strips and a Q hook. Takes about 5 hours to cut up the strips and another 4 or 5 hours to make the rug. I need to get busy and get a few more made. By the way if you make any rugs, yarn or rag, you need to be very careful of them slipping on the floor. So to solve that problem lay a strip of shelf liner under them to prevent the slipping. until next time...

  2. They were lovely, did you made those by yourself? I haven't tried making rugs but my mom used to make this one. She also made natural area rugs for our kitchen and it was awesome.
