Shaggy Rag Rug Dorm Decor

My daughter fell in love with the shaggy rag rugs so we decided to make one from recycled materials.
Hers is a small. Just the right size for a seat cover, dresser top or accent, but you can easily follow her lead to make one as big as you want..
It is so plush and soft. It is hard to imagine its humble beginnings.
We started with cheap sheets from the thrift store and dyed them in the yard. You can read more about the process below.
Then she ripped the sheets into strips.
An extra piece of non-slip rug mat was the base.
She knotted each strip onto the rug mat. Some tutorials just pull them through but she wanted hers to be extra strong.
She skipped rows so it wasn't too tight.
TaDa! Ready for school!
