Anyone made the Toothbrush Rugs yet??

LaraMarch 11, 2007

I'm using mostly cotton bed sheets bought at local thrift shops. Turning someone else's trash into my money making treasure! I've been posting this question for a couple of years now, but haven't run into anyone else who's making them. I was looking to swap patterns or exchange tips on making them. It's sometimes hard parting with the gently used, almost perfect condition, higher end label sheets. I sometimes can't bring myself to cutting them into strips! I don't have any pics of my rugs, but you can search for an image on google.

I made two of them years ago. My first one turned out like a mexican hat, as I did not put enough stitches on the corner.
It was fun, but I sort of stopped hobbies until I catch up on other chores.

i have made several rugs.i have made a round table rug for our oak dining table.i made chair rugs.all out of cotton fabric.
the first rugs i did while we took amtrack vacations.easy to have all supplies in a bag.
i haven't made any for a few years.i have a bag ready to go.with remodeling,gardening and cloth doll making the rugs have taken a back seat.i have also made a window frame can google hand made rugs and come up with a lot of variations. a wagon wheel was also used in rug making.
