    Looking for a rug pattern

    This is probably the wrong section to post this in and I will probably get in trouble...but here goes. I'm looking for a pattern, hopefully somewhere on the web, that uses polyester fabrics to make a rug. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm not able to work anymore (for now) and have no income so I'm hoping that someone will know where to find a working link on the web somewhere.

    Thank you in advance for everyone's help.
    On the lips and in the eyes of children.... Partial line from the movie "the crow" with Brandon Lee.

    I did this google search and came with with a few sites featuring Rag rugs with tutorials. I have never made one, but these may be of help to you. Just copy and paste this link to get you there.

    Here's one using 2 inch squares: http://steelscraps.blogspot.com/2010...2-squares.html

    Here's another that is for braided ones and you can use polyester knit: http://vintagechica.typepad.com/the_...g_tutoria.html

    Hope these are what you wanted! HUGS, Julie

    This is another project I have been wanting to do also. Is there a simple step by step tutorial? Thanks

    Way back, like in the 1980's I made several using this method and double knit polyester squares. they are great rungs but do not work well for bathmats as they don't absorb the water

    I don't have a link but in either countryside magazine or backwoods home magazine there are directions on crocheting rugs with fabric. You cut the fabric in about 1" strips cutting up to about 1/2 inch on the edge of the fabric then moving over 2 inches and cut down to the other side. When you get done you have a long 1" wide strip and they you roll them in a ball and single crochet in either ovals or circles or squares or rectangles. You might search the sites for those magazines and they may have better directions than I can give you. If i can figure how to post a picture I will post a picture of my sisters rug she made this way with flannel.


    I can't figure out how to post.
