Rag rugs appeal to me. Made using fabric off casts, they're a great way to upcycle old linen, they look good, and they're practical too.
Stacey, from The Farmhouse in the Field, shows how to weave a floor rug using old bed sheets. Any fabric that can be torn into 12" strips could be used - selvedge ends, table cloths, curtains. The detailed tutorial will step you through the process.
To weave a rag rug, you will need to have a loom. Of course, you could buy one, but I've found some tutorials for making your own. You may have to adapt them to suit Stacey's floor rug...
