    Great idea! What size are your strips and are you making it square or oval? God luck and hope you will post pics of your progress.

    Way cool! I want to try a no-sew braided rag rug. I haven't gotten around to it though.

    Wow! That is so pretty! Your color combo is so nice, and it certainly looks like it's coming along perfectly good to me. I would be so proud of myself making that! Do you have instructions? One of my goals for 2011 is to get back into crafting. I do know how to crochet, but have never been able to follow a pattern , even though I have no trouble learning the stitches. Just can't put it together except for scarves and blankets. Sooooo, I'm guessing I CAN do the rag rug.

    Thanks for the picture! It really is beautiful!
