Rug making is a old, old art. They were originally made from scraps of old clothes, sheets & blankets--the original upcycle!.
These were made as America was young & everything was used and reused until it fell apart. The toothbrush rug looks like a braided rug but uses about half of the material. I like using an old time craft to create new useful items in my house.
