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:)

The replica watches sale collections are limited edition one offs, certainly not made for everyday wear or pocketbooks.
