Crocheted Rug -- Finished!

I finished my crocheted rug last night.

I thought I wanted it to be about 24" x 36" but when I hit 19" x 32" I stopped. Even though I had a bunch more strips of fabric already cut that I could have used, this seemed like a good size. (Now what to do with the extra strips?!)

As I mentioned before, it reminds me of a cross between a rag rug and a braided rug.

It's going to be very substantial and I think will hold up to lots of washing.

But it is rather thick and heavy so I'm wondering how easily it will dry. I'm thinking my preferred way of drying it would be to lay it out on the metal deck table on a sunny day in the summer time. That way I could keep flipping it over and pressing/stretching it flat so it retains its shape.

Good job. It's so pretty.

Val - Thanks so much! Actually easy to do if you know the basic crocheting stitches . . . and have some fabric to donate to the cause!

SUPERQUILTER - Let's keep our fingers crossed it still lies flat after washing!
