CraftSanity on TV: Crocheting Rag Rugs From Recycled Cotton Bed Linens

by jennifer

I’ve admired crocheted rag rugs for years, but never got around to making any until last week, and I’m having a blast.

There’s something truly lovely about stitching strips of recycled cotton fabric softened by dozens of trips through the laundry. Today TV segment was inspired by the wonderful people behind the Rags to Rugs project at St. Andrew’s School in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Parents and volunteers are making rugs to sell to raise money for an emergency scholarship fund to help offset tuition costs for families who experience a job loss or other hardships.

You can read the story I wrote for my newspaper and download some basic instructions to make your own. I’ll be posting more specific instructions about how I made the circular rug I showed in process on TV as soon as I finish it.
