Thank you for comments, girls..

English is given to me hardly, however I will try to tell to you details. Grin

I used a tight woollen cloth as a batting and  cotton fabric with polyester for backing (it's more hard-wearing/wearproof ). If you are afraid of the rug will slip on a floor you can sew also small slices of corrugated rubber from a wrong side...

My rug is sewed as usual pieced quilt. At first I have collected jeans squares to strips, then have sewed those strips  together.
Look that I have found!

 It's interesting idea and  looks very simply....

Very cool! I have a big box of pants pockets I cut off to make a quilt but a rug from them would be just as neat!

What a cute little rug. It has very clean quilting lines, something I always have trouble with. Your photography is very nice too. It looks like something out of a quilting magazine. Smiley

That looks really great! It looks easier than a braided rug (one of my long list of 'some day' projects.)

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

My thoughts exactly!  I have tried braided rugs, toothbrush rugs and crochet rugs, and none of them have worked out very well.  But this looks like something that I could do!!

Thanks so much for the great idea and great pictures.  I may just do this today!
