 Strategically placed rag rugs are an exciting and creative way to spruce up any room.

Besides adding a splash of vibrance and texture to your decor, they are practical pieces as baby play mats, doormats, and bathmats. What is a rag rug?  rag rug is a small mat or carpet usually handmade from strips of scrap fabric. What makes it particularly many people’s favourite is that you can make it by repurposing clothing, and all you need is time and basic crochet and knot tying skills.

You also get to save those bucks, declutter your wardrobe, withhold more clothes from the already overflowing landfills, and the freedom of choice for colours and patterns.

Whichever way you look at it, it is always a win-win. How do you make rag rug yarn? Making rag rug yarn involves cutting rags, clothes, and other unwanted materials into strips and attaching those strips together by sewing or knotting.

You can roll the attached strips into a ball and then it is ready to be used. Some knots and ways of cutting material into strips are more efficient, but ultimately the process is simple.
