Fabric wrapped Clothesline Rug Finished!!

I really have no idea why I put off finishing this one. All I needed to do was sew down the end. Of course once I put it down on the linoleum floor I realized how slippery the rug was on top of it. I came back up to the quilting studio and decided to sew some of the rubberized shelf stuff on the back of the rug. I just zig zagged it on and I think it will work just fine.

I like the rug. I have been wanting to make some rugs and bowls. I am saving fabric. Just have not got around to it yet. Great job!

That's cute!

It looks great! I'm sure it will get lots of use, so the rubbery gripper stuff is really going to be useful.

I have always wanted to do one of these and your gorgeous rug convinces me that it would look great in my kitchen! Nice job!

very nice. I like the color.. will have to look into putting that on my list os things to keep me busy while Keith is away. Are they machine washable? They would work great under the kitty box ..

I never thought of putting that grippy stuff on the back of the one in my kitchen. I'm just always super careful around it.

Love the rag rug! I am going to put it on my to do list!! Yes it should wash great but would take a long time to dry. You could just
let the sun dry it for you.

Cool! I got that Bali Pops pattrn for a purse/bag but thought how nice it would be to make a rug from the same technique. I need one in our kitchen so my fat dog will stay put (if there IS a rug she's going to e ON it) and out of the way while I'm cooking. The fat dog thinks that if she's right under foot, she'll be first in line for anything that I might drop. This really wouldn't be an issue (her being in the way...) if she were a little lap sized dog......
