You'll Want to Try These 9 Rag Rug Making Methods!

Area rugs, whether small or large, are not cheap so these rag rug projects are also great money savers on top of being better for the environment than buying something new.

Braided No SEW T-Shirt Rag Rug

This is probably the easiest and simplest way to make your first rag rug. It involves braiding strips of t-shirt or other fabric and interweaving your rug as you braid to shape your rug.


I used everything from men’s shirts, to a sari, a silk blouse, pillowcases and several t-shirts!

Finger Crochet T-Shirt Rag Rug

This finger crochet rag rug method is brilliant because it is tool-free, you don’t even need a crochet hook to do it!
