Small squares of polyester material can be sewn together and used to make a unique throw rug. This is a guide about making a rug from polyester fabric squares.
Does anyone know if you can buy the polyester squares already cut out? My mom makes rugs, but she is having a hard time cutting out the squares.
I couldn't find anything on Google, but here is my ideas. I hope they help.
Find a friend, church member or younger person like a grandchild who will cut them for her. If she has a bit of time, she can advertise on Craigslist that she will make a rug for someone who will cut enough squares to make 10. Something like that. Who knows, it might lead to more business.
Good luck and please display one for us sometime? PBP
Buy your mom an Accuquilt GO! Baby cutter. It comes with the "value" set which includes a 4 1/2", 2 1/2" squares (4" and 2" finished size) and a 1 1/2" triangle shape. You can cut 6-8 squares at a time. Go! Baby cutter's best price where I bought mine was at:
quilting-warehouse.com for $74.99 which was the cheapest around. This will help your mom out tremendously.
I am looking for a pattern, made with small squares of double knit material sewn to a bigger piece of fabric to make a rug.

Hope this helps.
One inch or two inch squares folded into triangles sewn together to make a chain, approx. 100 squares to a chain ... about 20 chains sewn in an oblong circle starting in the middle of denim cut out in an oval shape.
