I was telling someone about the rugs I made, and thought I'd write it up.
For the braided strips, there is Rustic Braided Rag Rugs which has a diagram that helps, but I found this one more useful: How to Make a No-Sew Rag Rug (but it doesn't load, so you can see it at WayBack: 2013 version of No-Sew Rag Rug ).
I really liked the look of rug in an oval (like a thumbprint), but I had trouble going around the curve, adding more strips.
mine, made in 2014, avoided the curve by doing rows:
I tried again in 2020 with some sweatshirt strips.
For the twined rugs, you can find a bunch of videos on youtube if you search for twining rug or twined rug. I think this is the one I used, although it's been awhile: Rag Rug Weaving
I made this one in 2014. I think I used string on the vertical.
That's a size full bed it's on.
Then I did one with the jersey sheets (which I had dyed) and yarn verticals in 2015:
It's on the same bed…
I made a smaller, but thicker one in 2016, starting at the bottom instead of the top, which made it easier to keep it tight.
It's on the same bed, but the other direction (it's smaller).
I still have the boards and rods for the frame, and lots of sheets to use up.
Sewn Strip Rug
Back in 2015 I used Tshirt strips to sew onto a towel. Then I cut the strips.
