Rag Rug with Fabric Strips

I did not stop making rag rugs :)
Now, I wanted to make an oval one.
At this time, I used fabric strips: I had three sheets and 4 pillow cases that I cut - mine are about  1 1/2" wide. You can cut them, but I found that tearing is much faster.  To do this, just cut  the starts to your rip lines, then rip the rest, as shown.  Then wind up the strips into balls.

My cat Masha loves this rug :)
I used a big hook- size Q (15 mm). The most challenging thing was to keep the "roundings" even. My rug is not perfect, but we love it! And it is not small - 52" x 31".
And the cost of a rug is only  $3 or so! I had to buy only the hook. All my sheets were free- I had them for years in my closet and never used them. Now, they have a new happy life:)

  1. The Origina Replica Breitling claimed the bubble as a potential source of weakness that they were finally able to overcome with technology. Well, heading back to the late 1960’s and the high-end?,Rolex Submarine the brand took a page from the contemporary Detroit era of cars – as in, there’s no cure for cubic inches. In 1:1 Replica Rolex Watches case, though, they mounted what now looks like an absolutely insane crystal that’s now known to Tag Heuer Watches?collectors as a “Top Hat”.He sent lots of pictures along the way to show the innards of the?Omega Watches , including the Hermes handbags correctly signed inside case back.
