If you have old towels or t-shirts you can make your own fluffy rag rug. Make your rug out of old towels for an absorbent bathmat or out of old t-shirts or other scrap material for a unique throw rug.
Things You'll Need
- rubber craft grid
- old towels or t-shirts
Take your rubber craft grid and cut it to the size you would like your rug. You can find this grid at a fabric store. It costs about $5 per yard. You can make several small rugs with a yard of the grid or one large rug.
Cut your towel or t-shirt into 1/2 inch strips. Then cut those strips into two inch sections.
Thread the two inch pieces through the grid so both ends are on the same side and tie into a knot. This will create the fluffy effect when all the holes in the grid are filled. You can even wash your rug on the gentle cycle in the washing machine.
