Ginger writes,

"Every year my husband and I travel to the Adirondacks for our wedding anniversary at the end of September and I wanted something to do while relaxing at our rustic campsite. I make bobbin lace, but that is not the easiest to do while camping and the lighting needed for that is not good in the lean-to. So I decided 2 days before leaving to start a rag rug with fabric I had in the attic from my aunt. I was able to work on it in the car and got a great start on it. While camping and on the ride home I completed a good 10 inch circle. Wow did it looks nice and smelled just like the campfire. During October I added on to it to bring it to 16 inch circle. By the end of 2008 I have completed a 27 inch circle! I love it so far and going to keep on going. So I hope to make it big enough for in front of our fireplace in the dining room."

Shaunna T. writes,

"I've been trying to find the right thing to solve the cold floor problem in my sons' play room for the longest time. I used simple crocheting logic (an extra stitch at each turning point) to go back and forth in the center to make it a square, since the space I need to fill is square.  I'm also adding three extra stitches in each corner as it gets larger to accomodate the size. Thanks so much again for the how to instructions."

Shelly from Cheyenne, WY writes,

"I finished this rug late last night. My strips were a bit bigger (about 4" wide) than what you show in your videos but it still worked out.  I used old sheets that I received off of the local freecycle group here in Cheyenne. There were the bright blue plaid sheets which I wished after ward that I hadn't used because it just wasn't the same color hue, a pair of dark maroon and dark blue plaid sheets and then solid dark blue sheets and a light tan small checkered sheets. All were twin sized flat sheets and when I ran out of rags, the rag was finished by stitching the ends inside the rug. It was wavy in a few spots so I laid it down flat, laid a damp towel on top of it and blocked it by ironing the towel. It lays completely flat now. It measures about 3 feet long. It's not perfect but it works great for the front door and my husband likes the colors a lot more than the one I made from old pink sheets."

Rhonda writes, "Thank you so much for the tutorial video! It's so much easier for me when I can SEE it. You did a great job! I've included a link for you to see my first rug. It didn't come out perfect but I learn more as I make them. I've already started another one and thinking of the next as I'm working! The possibilities are endless! And again, Thank you!!"

Michael Anne writes, "I have been having a BLAST thanks to you. My sister saw something in a magazine about toothbrush rugs and told me about them. Soooo, doing what I do best, I researched them on the web and found you guys and the rug goth as well. Your instructional video is the best that I have found. Sooo off I went to see what I could do, because truthfully, I really didn't think it would be as easy as it seemed. WOW was I ever shocked. Easy, and fun. I did run into the problem of it trying to "bowl" on me but simply corrected by adding a stitch or two and lessening up on my tension, found out snug was better than tight. I am sending pics of the first one that is on my kitchen floor in front of the sink. It has already been abused by everyone who walks past and the dogs think I made it for them and it is holding up beautifully. Just used some cotton fabric I already had with intentions of quilting. This is better, can take with me everywhere, can't quilt everywhere. And you can see the finished product and have it in use in a day, depending on size of course. Anyway, THANK YOU, and Happy Rugging."Micheal Anne's Rug in the KitchenMicheal Anne's Rug in the Kitchen

Shelly from Cheyenne, WY writes, "My aunt made me this rug for my baby's room. I am working on one as well but I doubt it will come out as pretty."

Debby later writes, "Dear Rag Rug Cafe:  Attached are 2 shots of my latest Rag Rug, which I made learning from your site just a month ago. I started this one on January 15, and worked on it daily, so it has taken pretty much one month to complete (I just finished it today, Februrary 17!). It measures 66" x 47". Thank you so much for your tutorial!  Now I need to learn how to make square or rectangular ones!"

Sally writes, "I'm sending a picture of one of the rugs I made with the toothbrush technique.  I love making these and have made about 25 rugs, chair pads, hot pads and coasters.  I view rags and scraps a whole new way ever since I've started making these.  Thanks for the instructions."

Laird writes, "Hi, I found your website last spring and was so thrilled to see the video instructions and started on this rug right away.  I have made a braided rug before but found this to be much faster and easier and thus much more fun.  Mine is made of wool and took me months (working on it off and on).  It's now finished at 7 1/2 feet across and very cushy.  Thanks so much for the instructions!!  I've now taught three other people how to do this and they are ruggin' away. :)

Val writes, "I was so happy to find your rug instructions and started right away making rugs. I am working on two at present and have given a rug to one daughter and a new grandbaby. I will attach pics. The pink and brown was the baby's rug, the blue is the one I gave my daughter, the other is one I am working on but I want to make it bigger. I am working on another in lime and black, for grand daughters room. I have promised to make 2 of the lime for 2 grand daughters. Again, thank you very much. "

I found some resources to help me along but this is where I got my start. Thank you for sharing your passion so freely. I'm really enjoying my new hobby. I'm almost finished with my second rug and I'm gather fabric for my third. Sharon McCarron"
