Use scrap fabric to make a Simple Rag Rug

Fabric scraps are something that many people have laying around, but what are they supposed to do with them? Using the rags can be as easy as making a rag rug.


  • 1/4" mesh rug canvas or rug gripper
  • Fabric
  • Scissors


1. Cut fabric into strips, about 1/2 by 4 inches each. See what looks best for your particular rug.
2. If you have a pattern or design in mind, plan out where each color will go.
3. Feed each strip through the mesh across a diagonal.
4. Tie one square knot, or add another knot for increased density.
