Weave Your Own Organic Bathroom Rug Sets Weave Your Own Organic Bathroom Rug Sets

If you want to create bathroom rug sets yourself, one of the easiest ways to do it is to weave a rag rug. These rugs were very popular in the 20th century and are created by using old scraps of material. You can use scrapped clothing or material scraps to make your own bathroom rug sets.

Step 1 – Gather Fabric Strips

Cut or tear fabric strips into roughly-even widths. This makes the rug easier to handle in the future and eliminates the difficulty created by trimming later on.

Step 2 – Choose a Construction Method

There are several different ways to construct a rag rug, depending on your skills and abilities.

If you are able to use a loom, then you’ll want to cut width strips for your finished bathroom rug. Weave the strips between the warp strings.

A braided rag rug can be made by anyone who has simple braiding skills. Cut or tear roughly-equal strips and place them in groups of three. Braid them together, then baste the ends to keep them from unraveling. Stitch the braids in a circle or oval while wrapping them around each other.

Make two for a great bathroom rug set.
