Soooooooooooooooooo my budget is shorter than a toddler’s patience so I decided I was going to make a rag rug. I had both left over fabric scraps and some tshirts I no longer wore. I immediately went to scowering Youtube. I found this video and thought “hey! No problem!”
I jumped in the car and zoomed on over to the Walmart. Now there was an important distinction to be made that I completely missed. They suggest a RUG no skid mat NOT a shelf liner with holes in it. Unfortunately, I bought the latter.
Confident with my $5 roll of shelf liner *face palm* I head home. After 20min of trying to use a latch hook and alternatively trying to cut bigger holes, I gave up. I let the project sit for awhile.
Then inspiration! A rug is just some cushion with fabric right? A means to stop a draft right? So I cut and layered the liner and covered it in fabric. See pics and explanation below:
These holes are waaaaaaay too small. See the reference YouTube video above smh
I left an overlap of fabric inorder to glue it to the matt. I knew I’d want to wash this so I used up what was left of my Liquid stitch (waterproof) and in conjunction a permanent glue that was also waterproof.
The pattern in this fabric has always been a bit busy. If I recall, Ive had this fabric for at least 5yrs and didnt know what to do with it. Dont even really know why I bought it. Anywho, I broke out my black sharpie to see what I could color in to make it a bit calmer.
