I needed a little rug for in front of my sink
I had a couple sets of sheets that were
just for wrapping furniture or
'just in case' moments.
I cut them into strips,
sewed the strips together,
then rolled the whole mess into
a bowling ball:)
The next part was the best part.
I gave it to my mother who crochets.
It was returned to me in the form of a rug.
How perfect is that?
This rug was made with 4 queen bed sheets.
The strips were cut about 1.5".
The finished rug measures about 17"X40".
I do have another one that is round so
your options are not limited to squares and rectangles.
If you crochet, this would make a
great Christmas gift.
I try not to decorate other people's houses,
but these are to be walked on so
if it is getting muddy by the back door,
you know it's working.
One other tid-bit,
if you can find all cotton sheets,
you can dye them.
If they are cotton/poly,
the dye won't take so you should find
a color that you like as is.
Until next time,
