Ever wonder what to do with those scraps of material  you just can't throw away.... here you go.. I have plans to make one for my dd but coming up with different  colors is a problem getting ahold of but it is on my to do list.. so I thought i would share with you all. I hoped i did this right... so let me know if not...

I thought someone out there would enjoy it.. it is from a old seventies book on rug making.. sadly the book lost to old age & fell apart so i saved a few patterns & thought i would share this pattern due to easiness & recyclable of materail...cause i know we all have something that we just can't get rid of & why not make a rug.. my dd has this on her wish list & patiently waiting for one but getting ahol of different colored scraps has benn hard to get ahold of as practically no one sews anymore around here...

I tried to make something like that. It's very difficult, I never did more than a few meters.

In an old crafts book of me from the seventies something similar is mentioned, but made of old tights Undecided

Cool, but the intructions are a little vague.... I don't understand how you do the backing. or maybe it's just my inexperience.

all it is bringing the material through a hole or just through a piece of materail  & then tying it off on top.. or maybe better yet use the stuff to make those latch hook rugs..

i helped a friend make a rug similar to this about ten years ago using hook rug fabirc and old tshirts. came out nicely, and very pleasing to the bare feet.
  on a side note.. that doll is wonderously creepy.. i'm both terrified and enthralled- especially by the feet. i simultaneously grinned and shuddered when i saw her, lol.

Cool, but the intructions are a little vague.... I don't understand how you do the backing. or maybe it's just my inexperience.

i was a bit confused at the directions at first as well. the instructions keep referring to "the fabric" without specifying which one. so, here is my understanding:

1. you've got your strips, with all raw edges, all cut and ready to go.

2. use the hem tape to bind the edges of the large piece of monk's cloth to make the backing.

3. to attach the strips, you aren't actually threading them through the fabric, you're simply taking a few stitches in the center of the strip, on top of the monk's cloth. then you tie a knot and both sides are all nice and floppy on top and the bottom of the rug is nice and smooth.

although i'm sure craftjunkie's idea would work quite nicely, and much quicker and only slightly less finished-looking.

This is going on my to do list and it gives me a good reason to clean out hubby's dresser. lol   I think I'll try doing one with the hooked rug since I have some of that then another with the monk's cloth.

Oh!  I've been saving jeans to make one of these, but I couldn't remember where I found the instructions.  So glad to have come across this thread again!
