I like to use cloth bath rugs with no rubber backs for easy cleaning. Yet, I've begun to notice our bathroom rug downstairs needed replacement or renewal! (And quick!) Well wayyyy back to when I was a young mom, with no extra money to buy decorative things for the house, I remember using old fabric scraps to rejuvinate old, worn bath and kitchen rugs. I decided immediately that this old rug was not going to be replaced, but renewed!
In about two hours time you can turn a bundle of fabric strips into a new rug!
Yep, First, start with a bundle of fabric strips in the colors you want.
(My strips ranged from 1 1/2" to 3" in width...a variety of sizes is fine.)
Cut the strips into 4" to 5" pieces. (Again, you don't have to be exact.)
Then, line them up in a row on one edge of the rug (about 1/2" in from the edge). Start sewing your pieces down. Make sure your pieces slightly overlap. (See arrows below)
Start the next row about 2 inches to the left of the previous row:
As you continue to sew new rows, just keeping flipping those previous rows over
and remember to over lap your scraps, just a bit...
Bye! Bye! Old bleach stains...
...and hello rejuvinated bathrug! Best thing is, it's soft and cozy under wet feet and
still easy to wash!
It's a Win! Win! for sure.
Do let me know if you ever decide to make yourself one, as I'd love to see it if you do!
