Rag Rug

This is one project that took a loooong time, but I am so glad I pressed on and finished it. I made this from three twin sheets, two of which were the same pattern. (Amazingly, I found those two matching ones at two separate thrift stores!) I just have to show you a close up, because I love the yellow pattern so much...

So here it is, two-thirds finished. I cut the sheets in strips about 1.5 inches to make "yarn", then crochet it all together with a large hook. I think a lot of rag rugs are done using a different technique--not necessarily crocheted--but those result in a circle rug, and I wanted a rectangle.

Here's the end result, displayed in front of my kitchen sink! Best thing about these rugs is, the more you wash them, the softer they get over time. Cool huh?
I'm so happy with how it turned out :)
