This month's rag rug was made using a tool made from an old toothbrush. Opal, an older lady from church (now deceased) had taught us how to make "toothbrush" rugs quite a few years back but I forgot how it was done and she had done the middle part for me so I never did learn how to start it. I wanted to figure it out again but everybody else that I knew of that had learned as well had also forgotten- so I started searching online for instructions.
I found some that I think may be correct (here) and I gave it a go. However I had trouble following the instructions so I ended up following these instead and though it was different than Opal's rug it was quite easy to make and I think the result is very durable. As usual I love seeing something useful made from some old clothes and other strips of cloth that I had hanging around. A new rug that was completely free!
I would love to hear about any rag rugs that you have made - I am always looking for new ideas!
