So this is a rug I made out of scrap fabric and old clothes! It's fluffy and cozy and colorful and I'm very proud of it!

In progress on the "loom" I rigged up:

Up close:

It's made through a process involving a row of knotted fabric (torn up old clothing, fabric scraps), followed by a few rows of weaving. I kinda figured out a way to make a makeshift loom out of an old wire shelving unit, and pieces from a collapsible hanging rack. And tape. Lots of tape.

It turned out smaller than I expected, so if you want to try making one, just remember that it pulls together as you're weaving it.

Here's some more information about this type of rug - http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/our-favorite-sources-for-moroccan-boucherouite-rugs-214511
