Hi Susan! My Dad used to make rugs and mats out of rag rugs on his loom. We used to sew the ends together and make them into pillows & also purses. Here is a good video to help you. Have a Merry Christmas!!
Susan, here are some more ideas. Some are no-sew, some are sew and some are glue. They are pretty, I think I'll have to make a couple.
Try checking out a website called HomeTalk. They have a ton of ideas!
If there's a little ones that go in front of your kitchen sink on the floor you so two of them together so it still has The Fringe on the end and stuff the pillow in it
