Rag Rug Update - After Washing

I promised I would post an update to my Rag Rug Tutorial after I washed the rug.

Here's a picture after one washing in a top loading washer.



It was on the floor in front of the sink for about 3 months before I washed it so it received heavy wear.

This is easily my favorite of all the different kinds of rag rugs I have made. It stays flat, and is very cushy to stand on. It traps dirt and pet fur and is easily shaken out in between washings.

I might have to try one of those rugs - goodness know, we have enough extra fabric.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment! 8-)))

I really love this rug, and posted the link on the Threadbenders yahoo group.

A fabulous idea for anyone who does "Scrap Therapy" tons of 2" squares already cut!!! I don't know if I have 4000 yet tho- it will be more scrappy too as I won't have a whole row of each fabric!
