This is a rug made from a queen size bedspread that I found for $2 at the thrift store. The bedspread had bleach stain spots on it, but as you can see, they aren't visible in the rug.
Approximate Time: Three days

WOW. It looks fabulous. Good job. Only 3 days? I'll give it a try. Thanks for sharing.
WOW again - I love it.
I'm loving the idea, but think I might cut 1 to 1 1/2 inch strips, chain about 25 and single crochet the rug, any suggestions?
Great idea! Thanks for sharing!
I am so sorry. At first glance at this project, I didn't see any good directions. I said I didn't like it under those circumstances. I don't know if I can change my dislike to a like. Can you? I really do love this project and I think that I could make one easily with your instructions. I hope you can find out how to fix my stupid comment. I would rather have you win. Again, I am sorry, your project should be the winner.
Wow, it's beautiful! What a lovely way to recycle. I don't know how to crochet but that can be learned, creativity on the other hand is much harder! Thanks for posting this. :)
Wow, this is awesome! Now I'm inspired!
I made one of these in the 80's and it was the start of my carpal tunnel syndrome! Don't make too many of them!
You did mahhhbvalous dahlink. Great looking rug and a great way to make on the cheap. Good to make with flannel sheets etc for beside a kids bed.
Would you really be able to do this as a single crochet as suggested above or might you end up with an awkward bowl when your done due to the weight and size??
I don't know but it would be super to have someone tell us, if they have done so on this size.
**Just be sure to put some of that stuff underneath that stops an area rug for taking you on a slide!
I've tried this a couple times and can't seem to get it to lie flat. It wants to "cup" up. Do you have any suggestions to remedy this problem? Yours is beautiful.
I have a queen sized tapestry and I need a rug. I am very busy with 2 small children and full time school. Can this be hired done? Thank you in advance. Deb
