2nd Rug

I blogged about my 1st rug here
I have just completed a second one and I am pleased.
I think this one came out better.
What I did differently:
I tightened the strips and i put them closer to the nails so there is but a tiny fringe.
I went to a local craft show and a lovely lady showed me how to better connect the strips so they are not so bulky at the connection and it works.
I am pleased with this one and I am ready to start another one.
I so love making something so useful from scraps.
How about you dear reader, has anyone created anything useful from scraps lately?

This is so cool. Great little rug. You've inspired me to too. I started learning how to knit recently and I used strips of recycled t-shirts for the yarn. I'm making a post on it this week.
