I love love love your stuff. How wide do you cut your strips? And how do you tie them together (do you weave in the ends?) If these are trade secrets, I totally respect that.

How much do those kitty rugs go for? They are particularly super.

thanks!
the width of the strip depends on the thickness of the fabric, ie. thin linens get cut wider than thick knits.  i've been working with it for a long time now (about 4 years) so i've had time for trial and error.  as for the ends, i just tie them together, since most of my rugs are crocheted around and around (rather than back and forth with turning) all the knots end up on one side and i call that the back.
the price of the kitty rugs depends on the size, for my markets I make $50-$55 sized ones.  but i did have this lady special order a really big one and that cost more.  Oh yeah, I make customized rugs to fit and match your room!
