I cut strips of towels and fed them through a piece of canvas made for latch rugs. If you try this, you will need to make the holes in the canvas a bit larger to make it easier and hinged scissors. Check out my new website

I LOVE this! Making a rag rug is on my list of things to do this year, but I'd never thought of doing it with towels - I'm definately going to try this when I have a bathroom!

Don't the towels give off lint and threads like crazy though? I wouldn't think terry cloth would hold up very well after cutting it so small...cool rug though!

It does shed some but not bad. I washed it - which it held up fine, but it did not survive the dryer. So , you may want to tack it down with thread or let it air dry  Undecided
