100% cotton crochet and braided rugs

This is a rug that I used cotton fabric strips to make.
It is a sort of shabby look on purpose. This rug sits at the front of my washer and dryer. There was just a little too much white in the wash room /hall way. The area is a very small space so I let the rug stay on the softer tones. This is a nice rug because when it gets dirty I can just throw it in the washer and dryer, no special care like the wool rugs take. I just crocheted with the fabric till it ran out then I went to the next, just letting it make it's own pattern. The rug is a rectangle, although due to the angle of the photo it doesn't look like it. It was made in the traditional granny square method. That means that the two squares where made separately then joined together to form the rug. This is a nice way to make a rug because if you don't put a border on it, like I did, you can always make it bigger later by adding more squares. I didn't want to because I had a set spot for it. In front of the washer and dryer or the stove / sink in the kitchen, whichever I prefer for that week.

These next two rugs are also made out of cotton . This time it is recycled cotton towels. They can be thrown in the washer and dryer to clean also. (That is if you don't make them too big.) The oval one sits in front of my shower, and the rectangle sits in front of my sink. They are both in my upstairs bath. It is nice to use towels because they are very absorbent and easy to clean. Next time, though, I think I will make my strips about 1 1/2 inches wider, then the rugs will be real thick and squishy. Much nicer to the feet.


  1. Sunshine! I love the recycled towel rugs...I want to learn to braid rugs and this might be the place for me to start...How do I do it?

  2. I hope this is katidid I am replying too. Call me one day or email me through MJF. We can get together and I can explain it to you. If it is not Katidid. Post in my guest book and leave your email and I will get in touch with you. It is not hard and it is inexpensive too.
