Rectangle Rag Rug with Easy Great Corners (Recycled Pillowcase)

Rectangle Rag Rug with Easy Great Corners (Recycled Pillowcase)

Rag Rug Enthusiasts,

This new tutorial shows how to make a rectangle rag rug and it focuses on making the corners more precise and easier. It has some differences than my other rectangle tutorial and of course hopefully the filming and quality of the tutorial has improved also. I am a work in progress. I made this rug with only pillowcases to help add to the possibilities of your rug make creativity. I added my How to Cut a Pillowcase in One Long Strip to the end of the tutorial to make it is easy to view if you haven't already viewed it. I will republish a version of this tutorial with more focus on the pillowcases in a couple months. Hope some of you find it helpful and thank you to all that help promote my tutorials by sharing with others.

Thank you!


With a smile,
