Toothbrush Rugs - Complete Video Instructions (Part 1 - Beginners)

On this page you will find explicit step-by-step instructions that show you how to make a toothbrush rag rug! Yes, everything a beginner needs to know!

Toothbrush rugs are one of the easiest and quickest rag rugs to make. They are easy to learn, inexpensive to make, and the result is gorgeous!

Most other instructions that I've come across on the internet assume some previous knowledge of crochet or knitting. But, believe me, you don't need any experience to learn how to make these rugs! In fact, I just learned how to make these two weeks ago, and I am not very crafty at all.

 

 

 

I taught myself how to make these rugs in one day, and was SHOCKED at how easy it was. I figured it out in one evening, piecing together a number of different directions I found online.

I made two very small experimental pieces that looked awful, but soon enough my rug started to look good and I started a rug for real that very first night. The next day I worked on it ALL DAY LONG (8 or 10 hours?), and my first rug was complete! I was so satisfied and proud of myself!!

As a result, I vowed to share my knowledge. I don't like learning from diagrams, so I wanted to actually SHOW how to make the stitch. I just had to share my easy rendition.

Here is an example of what my instructions can help you to make. This is the first rug that I created (after a few false starts, of course).

START BY EXPERIMENTING

Material

To start experimenting, you will need two long strips (each approx. 2 feet long) of fabric, yarn, ribbon, or whatever you have on hand.

Tool

You will also need some kind of tool to help you pull the strip through--basically, you will need a "big needle". Many people use altered toothbrushes. The bristles/head are cut off and the severed end is filed to a point, like the pointy tip of a needle. The untouched end gets a hole drilled in it, like the eye of a needle.


Other people have used crochet hooks, or have purchased a tool from the "Aunt Philly" website.

When I was learning, I wanted to experiment right away, so my partner helped me bend part of a coat-hanger into a tool. Not perfect, but it works! Even if you don't have any kind of tool, I suggest experimenting anyway. How about a short, pointy pencil with your fabric taped to the end? The only reason you need a tool is to help you push your material through a tight hole.

 

 

Introduction

Let's watch the following movie. In it, we jump right into seeing the very basic knot that you need to know. Don't worry if you don't quite get it; this is just to give you an idea of what is to come.

Okay, now you've seen that the idea is pretty simple!

LET'S MAKE A RUG!

Making Lots of Fabric Strips

To make a whole rug, you will need lots of one-inch strips of material. Any material will do (try cotton or wool), but dry to avoid very stretchy material (like spandex, for example) because it's harder to work with. Basically, just use whatever you have on hand to begin with. To start a rug, I usually get around twenty strips "ready to go", which means that they are cut into one-inch strips (anywhere from 3 to 6 feet long), I've removed any annoying strands that are hanging off the strips, and I've cut small holes in the ends (discussed in the movie below).

 

 

Starting Your Rug

In this movie we start a circular rag rug properly, and we watch how to attach the strips together when your strip gets too short. (By the way, we start with circular rugs because they're the easiest. Ovals are pretty easy too, once you get the hang of the circle.)

3. So, here we go! Let's make a rug!!

My best advice is to just keep plugging away on whatever you've started. At first, it will probably look like a horrible jumble, but after you've gone around a couple times (for example, you've made like fifty to seventy knots [but don't count them or anything!]), you'll suddenly realize that you're starting to figure it out!

Once you feel like you've got the basic idea, it's time to start over with new material and actually start again with a perfect start.

PS: If you really want to make your rug look good, see the next tutorial (for intermediate ruggers)!

 

Comments

Thank you, thank you, thank

Thank you, thank you, thank you I have finally been able to get going on a toothbrush rug. The material I picked for practice sucks but now I know I don't want to use it on a good rug. Strings strings everywhere. Can I pin this on Pinterest?

You can purchase rolls of 2"

You can purchase rolls of 2" to 7" rolls of fabric so you can start your run right away. Just go to Ebay and search for Fabric rolls. They are sold by the pound. They are from Mill Ends. When a machine cuts fabric for sheets, curtains and more. The excess is cut off and sold as Mill Ends.

I use the Mill Ends to make crocheted rugs. The more you put them in the washer and dryer the better and softer they are.
My motto" Don't work harder, work smarter

Happy Crafting!

I am ready to take this on.

I am ready to take this on. It sounds like something I can handle. My sister used to try to teach me to crochet with "increases" and I'm finally "getting it". Can't wait to make a tool, start tearing my sewing scraps, and start knotting. I have a passion for rugs and now can design my own...I hope. Thank you for the instructions and videos, and thanks to everyone for the helpful comments.

A formula known to knitters

A formula known to knitters will help with the curling problem. It's from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Pi shawl method, although pi doesn't actually come into it. The gist is this: every time the row count doubles, the stitch count doubles.

So on round 2, work 2 knots in every knot.

On round 4, work 2 knots in every knot.

On round 8, work 2 knots in every knot.

On round 16, work 2 knots in every knot.

And so forth. For ovals, work the straight edges normally and work the 2-in-1 knot beginning with one edge knot (that is, the first and last knot of your beginning line of knots).

Hope this helps!

If your are planning to buy

If your are planning to buy used car maruti car , wagnor , santro are the hot selling cars in cities.
Most of us don't even realize that we may have paid more than when we take time to shop and search.
The unbiased care reviews at these websites covers each and every aspect
of new and used cars, be it their performance or their feature list, you will

i recently purchased written instructions to make a round rug but had tried several times unsuccessfully until i watched your video. great great great thank you so much i have finally figured it out!!!!

Thank you, for the awsome

Thank you, for the awsome instructions and video. I have been looking for a new why to make rugs other then braiding. I also have a tip. If you don't have a metal hanger a good size safety pin works too.

I am enjoying learning how to

I am enjoying learning how to make these rugs. With the round rugs it seems to be curling up a lot. Unless it gets quite loose at the edges. Should I do more than one knot per hole?

I love your blog.. very nice

I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for
you? Plz reply as I'm looking to design my own blog and would
like to know where u got this from. thanks

Thank you for the clear and concise instructions. I have wanted to make one of these for years and now with your instructional video.. All I need is an old toothbrush.

I love you !

Oh my goodness! You should

Oh my goodness! You should write books and do videos. As has been said previously, you are such a natural. SO easy to understand and excellent tips along the way. When I first had the idea to try this, I pictured myself going to the store to buy fabric and hooks and who knows what else! Now I know, I can simply use what I have and try it before I spend loads of money. (I'll probably start with all the fabric I've purchased for other unfinished projects!! LOL!) Thank you so much!

A large paper clips works

A large paper clips works well for the tool. I feed the small portion into the slit of the fabric and it makes like a needle.

Hi I love your rugs and just

Hi I love your rugs and just wanted to tell you .You can also use plastic groshry bags to make a welcome mat

Thanks for the great videos!

Thanks for the great videos! I used fabric I got from an estate auction -- not something I'd want to use in a quilt, but not something I'd want to throw away, so it's a perfect choice for the rug. In thinking of the tool, I took a chance and searched in an old sewing box I got from a different estate sale and LUCKY - found a rug tool!!! My circle is now about 8" in diameter and I am thrilled!

I know I'm doing something

I know I'm doing something wrong, but I don't know how to fix it, I'm doing all the steps just like your video shows, but it's turning up with each row, and not laying flat. It looks more like a bowl than a rug! What am I doing wrong and how do I fix this!?

Darn I keep getting lost Its

Darn I keep getting lost Its good videos I'm just stuiped.

Thank you so much for easy to

Thank you so much for easy to understand instructions! & for taking the time to share what you have learned with the rest of us! I have always wanted to make a rag rug & this looks like it'd be fast as well as easy. I got lucky! You were the first instructions I clicked on!!! No need to look any further! When I get my rug finished I will find a way to post a pic so you can see it! Thanks again!!! :)

Liked your video very much.

Hi...me again...could you

Hi...me again...could you please help a friend of mine & myself? We are wondering how to change the shape into a rectangle...we are both going to start our 1st rugs. Thank you!

Is the photo at the very top

Is the photo at the very top of this post about rag rugs one that you made? It looks like the technique used may have been different from the one shown in the photo with the book. I really like the one at the top with the blues, greens, and purple and would like to make one similar to it. I started to make one but the fabric seems to make it very thin and flimsy, and the blue/green rug photo doesn't look very flimsy or thin. I'm not sure if it's the technique used or the fabric, I was looking for more information on how that specific rug was made and what was used - t-shirts, bedsheets? Thanks!

Please, someone, tell me how

Please, someone, tell me how to keep it from rolling up at the edges....i have started and torn it apart three times now. I have made sure i am not pulling it too tightly and then it seems it is too loose. I contacted my local craft stores for help but no one can help me......help!

please sent written

Thank you for your

Thank you for your tutorials!! My grandmother use to make these and crocheted rugs. I'm at the age now where I want to do more home crafts and I have been looking for the instructions for these rugs for a while.

Your instructions (printed and video) are very clear and you make it seem so easy. You should do instruction videos for a living! hahahaha

Again, thank you for taking me "back in time"!

I followed your video and

I followed your video and love making the rugs. But found myself making bowls, had I known I only had to throw the rug on the floor and yell at it I would have saved myself a lot of work tearing it out. :) Found 6 toothbrushes in one package at the dollar store. The old fashioned plastic kind with a hole in the handle smooth no rubber on them. They make perfect large needles to make the knots with. I guess I don't understand how to increase on circular rugs. All the instructions I've read are vague. Could use any help out there. Rug maker in Michigan

Thank you so much for taking

Thank you so much for taking the time to post these very helpful videos. I have a question about my rug. I have made a a coupe of small practice circles and now have started to attempt my first full oval rug, but all the pieces I have made are not staying flat. If I keep going I think I will have a basket instead of a rug. Did this come up in your rug making? Do you have any suggestions for me? Should I just make the knots looser each time?

Thank you for your help.

Thanks for your video. I just wanted to tell you that I found the perfect tool. It's actually a scarf closure. The company is Belle Buttons by Dritz. I put a picture on Pinterest if you do a search for the name. Thanks again, Lauren

Thankyou so much for your

Thankyou so much for your instructions and videos. Your's are the very best I've found. The piles of old cloths are ready and my self made tool can finally be used while referring to your site. I'm bending copper wire and wrapping with electrical tape.

Holy cow, that's the same

Holy cow, that's the same stitch used to make friendship bracelets! I never would've guessed. A resident at the assisted living community where I am the Activity Director just said last week she's like someone to make her a little rug - now I know how. Thanks so much for the easiest instructions I've ever seen.

Why viewers still use to read

Why viewers still use to read news papers when in this technological world all is existing on web?

I got the technique down i

I got the technique down i think. I bought the aunt Lydia tool and pattern. It confused me. So when I get the center two strip "chain" as long as I want, how to I turn the corners.....????? That's what I can't figure out......do u have anymore video links you could share?????

Will the runner strip be

Will the runner strip be hidden in the rug. I am practicing and it seems like it will be. I have used two different colors so I can see my stitches better. But the runner strip seems to disappear.

Hi

Hi

Hi

Hi

Thanks, this is awesome. This

Thanks, this is awesome. This video shows me exactly what I needed. I saw a LOT of rag rug video tutorials and none helped me like yours, especially with your join strand tip. I dont have toothbrush needle but a 10mm crochet hook is working really great for make this :D. About people asking how keeping flat the rug...every row make 2 "stitches" in one hole(example: 1 in one hole, 1 in one hole, 1 in one hole, 2 in one hole, 1 in one hole, 1 in one hole until finish the row....and similar in next row). If your rug "weave" just make one in one hole complete row. Do you have more videos show your lastest rugs? I´d love see them. Have a nice day.

Tool, instead of making a

Tool, instead of making a tool or buying one. Just use a safety pin. Hook it through the loop on the end of a strip and shove it through. It fits better and the fabric is completely secured to the "tool" without a knot and the pin fits easier through the hole.

Thank you very

Thank you very much....explained in such a down to earth fashion. Been trying for a while to find how to do this. Thank you again .... I'm off and rugging !

Thank you so much for this

Thank you so much for this wonderful set of tutorials. I was looking online for instructions, hoping I wouldn't have to pay thirty dollars to order a dvd from aunt Phylly. I already have the "toothbrush" and tons of fabric, just needed a visual to get me going. So nice of you to take the time and share, it is greatly appreciated!
