upcycled pillowcase rag rug -finished!

A couple of months ago I cleaned out my linen press and found heaps of old pillowcases.  I didn't want to throw them out and having crocheted with cloth before I decided to keep them for a rug project.   Fast forward a few months and I finally had some time and an idea.

I cut each pillowcase into thin strips (about 1cm) and started crocheting with a 10mm hook.  I found that HDC stitches worked best.

And now it's finished! It's about 1.5 metres across and now is sitting under the coffee table in our outdoor sitting area.  As this is made from upcycled material I have no hesitation in using it outside.  The deck is covered so it probably won't get wet but it will get dog hair on it.

Here are a few photos of the process.  Enjoy :)

I thought this looked like a hydrangea
