Tuesday Tips – Rugcycle

Large mats and rugs can be very expensive, so why not create your own? How?! By sewing smaller mats together of course! I’ve tried.

I guess the word rugcycle is really meant for old rugs that are recycled, but as the word sounds so cool I just had to use it.

You can also use this as a way of adding colour. Here I’ve used pink thread to go with my green mats. It might even be possible to sew two rugs together with a sewing machine. Sadly my sewing machine would just laugh at me if I tried something like that, hence the hand stitching.

Don’t want to do it yourself? In Sweden there’s a company called RugCycle.
They specialize in vintage rugs.

The great thing about rugcycling is that it doesn’t matter if the size of the rugs varies.
It just makes it interesting and different.

A rug can even be made too look shabby like here with threads hanging out.
