These images from Flickr inspire me...to someday make a crocheted rug.  

Some of these are made out of T-shirt knit fabric strips.  

Many years ago my sister-in-law gave me a crochet pamphlet on making rugs out of plastic bag strips.  

I hope one of these days I can put this project on my "to do" list.

How about you? 

Are you inspired to try one?   

And there are more REDs to enjoy with our host, Sue, at 

It's A Very Cherry World

for REDnesday!

  1. I love the look of a fabric rug, I would put it in my bedroom, no traffic!!!!! I don't know if my hands would hold up if I started one. I am sure yours will be a beauty (in blue?) :) xo

  2. Yours are very nice colorful rugs get their hands a great health ..

  3. Now you're talking my language! I love crochet rag rugs...used to make them a lot when I was younger. Have lots of things I've collected the last few years to make some more. They are so durable and so colorful...I don't think any TWO are alike!
    Hey, I actually have one I made when I was pregnant with my last child-- my youngest was just a baby...so It's about 22 years old (?) Wow! ...like I said 'durable'. This one is a runner and has been used everywhere !

    Love your mosaic-- beautiful colors- Pat

  4. What a whirl of rugs with red!


    Red is the color of cherries, not cheese;
    Yellow the backs of the sweet honeybees;

    Red the fair hair of the Derry Town maid;
    Yellow the yolk of the brown egg fresh-laid;

    Red are the wounds of the sun going down;
    Yellow the daisies beloved by the clown;

    Rainbows of colors, delighting the eye—
    Yellow and scarlet for this lullaby.

  5. Yup, I am....but I have about a dozen projects ahead of it...lol Love them!


  6. These are so pretty. I never knew what they were actually made of, even though these rugs are so popular. Good luck with your project, and keep us updated. Happy Rednesday from Buddhatropolis.com

  7. Don't show me these!! I've been wanting to make one for awhile, and even saw some really pretty ones the other day.... but I've got too many projects I have to get done first!! But my what eye candy!

  8. These are all very pretty rag rugs. I have one that a friend of mine made and it is one of my favorite little rugs.

  9. Pretty! You can braid them, too! I've made 2 braided coasters to see if I could handle making a rug. Maybe this winter! ♥

  10. They are so pretty! I remember my mom braiding a huge oval one for our living room. It wore like iron - even with six of us kids!
