Simple Lives Thursday: Making a Rag Rug

The new location of this post is

Making a Rag Rug.

This blog has moved.  Sorry for the inconvenience!!!

Part 2, Part 3 & Part 4


  1. I love the idea of notching the fabric so that a strip can be added without sewing. I have come to the forming of my braided bowl/basket and I can see how the same method could be used for making a braided rug. So that is what I want to make next, your notching idea will save me a lot of time. Thanks!


  2. Funny thing that is what I liked about the instructions I found in a book somewhere. The notching--it is easy & fast. Glad it helps!

  3. We had a rag rug when I was a little girl - I'm interested to see how it was made!

  4. I can't wait to see how you do this with a toothbrush! Arthritis in my hands has made me give up knitting and crocheting. I am hoping maybe this new technique will be something I CAN do. Pretty rug!

  5. @love2spin I hope that it works for you! It is so frustrating to not be able to do the things that you love.

  6. Wow, that's pretty neat. I do want to know how to do that. I'll be back.

    I've put you in my reader, I can't wait to see how you do this. It'll be awhile before I can actually get the time but I've been wanting to make one of these for my bedroom for ages. Thanks!!

  8. I've wanted to make one of these for a long time! Yours turned out fabulous!!

  9. I love making toothbrush rugs!! I am in the process right now of making one for the floor of our basement room. It's going to be the largest one I've made.
    I did a squidoo lens on making mine. Would you mind if I add a link list module in my lens and add your links to the 4 part instructions?

    I just started a Frugal Friday's with Marsha on my blog. I would love for you to come and add some of your posts to the linky!!



I love to hear your thoughts, so please share!

Also, I delete comments that only ask for a follow back. The best way to get me to YOUR blog is to leave comment showing that you've read SOMETHING on my blog. Thanks!
