MATERIAL USED TO MAKE A RAG RUG:
- Old bedding sheets/linen – colour and design of your choice
- Anti rug slip mat , or a latch rug canvas with a 1cm grid width.
- Fabric scissors
HOW TO MAKE A RAG RUG:
This rag rug is very simple to make, but can be very time consuming.
I basically cut up 3 single (twin) bed sheets I had which I no longer used in to strips of approximately 15cm x 3cm. I then knotted each strip to the anti rug slip.
Check out my video tutorial below to find out exactly how I did this.
And thats how the rug is made. The good thing about using bedding is that you can wash it on a 30•c wash (which I have done with no problems).
Here is a picture of the underside of the rag rug.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. To see more of my work please visit my Facebook page Beautiful Painted Furniture.
