I was visiting a blog(Green Baby Guide) that I had never been at before and noticed that they were hosting "Thrifty Green Thursday". I enjoy being Thrifty and have green leanings as well so I thought it would be fun to join in.
A project that I completed lately that is both thrifty and green is this rag rug. I really like rag rugs, 1st of all they are useful, 2nd they make a place look homey (in my opinion) , 3rd they are fun to make and 4th they don't cost anything.
The rag rug above I made using strips of jean in various shades and then red fabric strips from an old jacket and a t-shirt around the edge. You can use various types of fabric (old clothes, old curtains, old sheets even old ties) I have used t-shirts but they are a little trickier as they are so stretchy.
Here are instructions for a round crocheted rag rug.
And instructions for an oval one.
And finally after a bunch of looking I found a demonstration of what I think is the easiest way to join strips. (It also looks nicer than most others in your rug.)
If you have any questions feel free to ask. Rug making is fun and a great way to use up otherwise unusable garments!
