Went to Michael's tonight after dinner. Oh my, I could have bought everything Halloween. Cute stuff. I must admit I don't like spiders or crows. I do love everything else, though.
I promised to show you how I make my throw rugs. For this particular rug, I cut out a square from a dish towel someone gave me for Valentine's Day, which makes it free. I like Valentine's Day in miniature but not in real life. LOL It was red and white squares. I cut out the red square.
|Start removing threads|
|Keep pulling, doing both sides|
Using some type of fray check, run a thin line of it at the end of the fringe to keep it from continuing to unravel. When it dries, look at both sides and trim carefully to true the sides up
For the sides that aren't fringed, if the fabric is soft and thin like the one in my picture, just fold it over and use Fabric Fusion (Aleene's). If it's a thick rug, use either fray check or Fusible Stretchable glue (Aleene's). Just keep glue from gunking up and let it dry before you touch the rug.

We have a garage sale tomorrow and I have a birthday party. For tomorrow's blog, I'll probably be talking about the hot tub idea that I have.
