This rag rug is appliquéd with the name Emily in my own handwritten font. I made this originally as an example to use in custom listings. However, I'm no longer making rugs like this, so I'm selling this rug at a discounted price (originally $140, now $70).
**Please note: I am not accepting custom orders. This is the only name rug I have.
I crocheted this one of a kind (OOAK) rug with salvaged fabric cut into yarn. The fabrics for this rug came in the form of mill ends, a by-product of manufacturing, where the large spools of fabric are trimmed and the result is a narrow strip of fabric yards and yards and yards long. Essentially waste to the factory, but collected by rug makers to use in rug-making. Using fabric yarn creates a rug that is thick and soft yet very very durable.
The "emily" appliqué on the rug was made from a red t-shirt. It is securely attached to the rug with fabric adhesive and then I hand-stitched around the entire perimeter to reinforce it.
This rug is machine washable and dryable. It measures 27 inches (68.5 cm) in diameter. Perfect for the bathroom, kitchen, office, living room, bedroom, playroom, nursery, dorm room, or any other room that needs a nice rug or mat.
Additionally, dogs and cats love to sit on these rugs! This rug would make a great pet mat to put on the sofa, a table, or your pet's favorite place to hang out.
