Turkey Tracks: I Finished The Rugs!

I Finished The Rugs!

The old sheets I cut into strips with my pinking rotary cutter blade made three rugs.

Here are all three rugs at the front door:

Sheet Rugs

You can begin to see the possibility of sewing the rug sections together to make a larger rug…

And here’s a video so you can see them close-up:

I like the first one I show the best, which is a surprise.  It’s the one without any strips or blocks of color, but with the sheets and the fabrics always just alternated.  It looks so sweet at my back door in the kitchen.  It looks very French country, actually.

I put leftover strips on the loom to hold the side rods in place, so it’s all set up for another project.  I noticed this week in changing sheets that the elastic in one bottom blue sheet is getting very stretched out.  Probably by next winter, I’ll be cutting up more sheet strips.  Blue ones.  These rugs would make nice gifts, especially here in Maine where people take off their boots when they come in your house.

  1. The pictures and videos are great but can not compare to the real life beauty of these rugs. They are sturdy and delicate at the same time. Very fun.
