Easy No Sew Shag Rag Rug Everybody Loves and Wants!

Don’t you just love shag rag rugs?  Well, here’s an easy tutorial so you can make one!  These make awesome gifts so you can start making Christmas presents early!  Every year I tell myself I’m gonna get Christmas done in July…it hasn’t happened yet, but with all the great tutorials I’m finding online I might just do it this year!

Shag Rag Rugs are soft and cozy, warm and inviting and extremely stylish; making them the perfect addition to a hefty price tag that came with it. I was bound and determined to have a shag rug for my grand baby’s nursery, and guess what? My DIY Shag Rag Rug turned out GREAT, it looks so much better than I imagined!

I’ve seen a 3X5 at Urban Outfitters $79.00. This is how you make one with very little expense.

MATERIALS:
1. 1/4″ mesh rug canvas or a rug gripper
2. Fabric (cotton or synthetic wool works great)
3. Scissors

For fabric, you may even want to use recycled t-shirts or scrap fabric. It cuts costs and puts old clothing to good use!

DIRECTIONS:
1. Cut fabric into strips. About 1/2 by 4 inches each. See what looks best for your particular rug.
2. If you have a pattern or design in mind, plan out where each color will go.
3. Feed each strip through the mesh across a diagonal.
4. Tie one square knot. Or add another knot for increased density.

Watch this step by step tutorial and make yourself one!
