Rag Rugs and Plastic Rugs

I finished 4 rugs last week in the hopes of clearing out some of my craft stuff...

and then Earl and I went to the thrift store.

I got some more beautiful sheets to fill my drawers with until I get to crocheting another rug.

I think my craft stuff is like doing dishes or laundry.....

it's never ending....

But,

definitely more fun!!


Sorry for the poor picture quality, It's been cloudy here and the lighting is terrible for photos.


This is a rug out of sheets. 


This pretty blue rug is also out of sheets and I fringed the sides with strips of sheets.



 This bag is made out of white plastic Wal-Mart, Target, Dollar Tree, etc...... bags.
It takes several hundred bags to make one rug, but a great way to use my neighbors bags who don't use cloth shopping bags.  So after I bum bags off my neighbors I cut the bags into strips, connect them together and roll the plastic strips into balls.
I crochet the strips of bags with cotton crochet thread
for extra color and strength.



I made this rug for our bathroom floor.  It is out of Hannaford bags and the blue cotton thread.
It really looks so much prettier than I thought it would and works great for standing on when we get out of the shower.

This are beautiful Sherry! Nice work! Do you need to put those rubber thingies under them so they don't move?
