    You can cut rags into strips and tie them end to end. Use a large crochet hook and crochet rugs from the rag strips into ovals or rectangles--whatever shape and size you need.

    These are fun. We did them in elementary school. It's especially cool to use old clothes. You can use either knits or woven fabrics, but I prefer woven. Tear the fabric into long strips. Tie three pieces together with an overhand knot at one end, then braid. As one strip gets short, just lay another strip on it and keep braiding. When you have a very looonnngg braid, lay it on a flat surface and begin to coil the braid. Keep the braid flat and not on the edge. Every few inches, stitch with needle and thread a hidden stitch to hold the braid to the coil. That's pretty much it. Stop when you have a big enough rug or you run out of fabric!
