    So how do you make these? Anyone have a favorite pattern link or simple instructions you'd care to share? What do you use? Old clothes strips or fabric strips? Any other advice for me? I am thinking I'd like to make the rectangular type, not round.

    I have a huge stain of chili on my rug, that I don't know how to tackle safely. It's a area rug like carpet, I guess that is the best way to describe it. I would prefer not to use chemicals on it. Thanks for any help!
  7. Secondhand Shopping
    I've been needing a rug for awhile to fill a blank looking living room, but I refuse to spend $80 for something that's going to get walked on. I've been looking for a cheap one at Goodwill and garage sales for about a year or so, and I found one for $4 that has the colors of the German flag...
  8. Just Tips

    I'm such a klutz. I just had 1 can of beer and dropped it. Then stupidly, I picked up the wrong end of the can and spilled about 1/4 cup of the beer. I blotted it with a towel but will it make the rug smell? The embarrassing part, it happened at someone else's house. I told her that I had...
