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.
