I want to crochet a small rug for the kitchen, but i was thinking that it might slip around on the tile once its finished... Huh

Is this an irrational fear, something i have to get over, or a problem that has a solution?


Thanks!

I don't know if this would work for a rug, but when I made slippers I lined the bottoms with fabric, and used that fabric paint in the tubes to put little dots on the bottom.  They work as well as little rubber grips!  Smiley  Maybe if you use slight big dots of the paint.  Jsut line it with fabric first, or the paint will look icky all over the yarn.

You could also use hot glue, put dots of it on the back.  or they sell these rubber mesh mats that are for rugs, you can cut it to size.  i think they are about $10 at the local deptaprtment store.

You could also stick no-slip stickers for a bathtub on the back.

I would cut and sew something like this to the bottom http://www.amazon.com/Griptex-Wonderliner-60-Inch-Standard-Almond/dp/B000H7WQ0S/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1200703479&sr=1-2
its basically a shelf liner, when you put it in the shelf it keeps stuff from moving around. Same principal should work for a rug.
