Prairie Rugs Cotton Area Rugs Red 6 x 9 Foot
The World's Finest Handmade cotton area rugs. They are made exclusively for us in India with total quality control. The best materials are used to make our rugs including 100% cotton (chindi) rags; expensive European dyes; high-grade cotton warp thread. The rags are triple washed after dyeing to prevent color transfer. Prairie rugs are machine washable in cold water. They can also be dry cleaned. Typical cotton rugs are often made with low grades of cotton, printed cloth or cotton blends. The low grade warp thread means the rug may only last for a few seasons. Our handmade cotton rugs are made to last for decades because we use the finest materials.80% (7)
5 recycled shirts rug
This is my second rug project. This is a 3 and 1/2 by 2 and 1/2-foot braided rag rug made from five recycled old shirts, all of 100% cotton. Because I again, as a total novice, made mistakes, I learned some things. For example, I had shirts of different fabric weights, yet I cut them all into 2-inch strips. When I braided the strips, the lighter-weight fabric made skinnier strips. In the future I will cut lighter-weight fabric a bit thicker than the heavier weight fabric. I also learned that it is important, and tricky, to keep a moderate, even tension on the braid while lacing the rug together. Pull too much and the rug will "cup" up into a bowl. Too little and it'll show the laces. I made this rug a shade too tight in spots, and need more practice keeping that even tension. I also see, clearly, that a border really finishes the work and makes it look done. I saved most of my blue to make the final border, and I think it looks nice. I also learned that, amid the wild mix of colors, some lengths of solid color stripes (here, burgundy) are very pleasing to the eye. What I love about this rug is the chaotic swirl of mixed colors, which I find more exciting and interesting than a bunch of concentric rings. I love gazing at different areas on the rug and seeing how the colors in that section are interacting. You can almost eat these lovely bright colors with a spoon. My next project is making a terry cloth bathroom squooshy-rug from some old towels. I picked out some really sweet colors in a whole different palette, and hope to get that at least started before Thanksgiving. Thanks for looking at my rug.Braided rug
Rug measures about 21" diameter and probably took me the equivalent of one and a half to two full days to make. Fabrics from FabMo (fabmo.org).

This time-honored craft is an ideal hobby for all ages and makes a wonderful family project that can be completed in a day or as time allows.
