    A bracket in my closet broke and I had clothes all over the floor. I saw a 'few items' that no longer fit and one of them was a green flannel lounger type dress. I stood there looking at it and decided to cut it up into strips and make another rope rug. There was enough to make a 18 x 30 inch oval rope rug. The flannel makes it much softer than quilting cotton. It turned out great!

    Hi , I followed the instructions from the Tutorial 'Scrap Rug' right here at Quilting Board. I did have to join the clothesline rope to make it longer. But it is real easy. I used about 135 feet of the rope. I used a glue stick to join the strips and some of the strips were only 5-6 inches long. I find that using strips 3//4 inches or just a little less easier to wrap than wider pieces and strips that are no longer that 22 inches. if they are longer they tend to get tangled. Let's see how many of you can make some. I have some flannel shirts waiting for me :lol: :lol: :lol:
