Recently, a video became very popular on our Facebook page, Whitehouse Whimsies and Rugs
I'm posting it here for quick reference. I hope it will give you some Toothbrush Rug Help.
"Happy Dance" is an Amish Knot Rug created from a popular sheet set sold in the 90's, or so I'm told. I used 3 twin size sheets, 2 flat sheets, 1 fitted, and 6 coordinating pillowcases. I also used an extra white sheet for the core. It is 35" round.
The Process - From Fabric to Rug
In the Amish Knot Rug, also known as the toothbrush rug, fabric is torn into strips and knotted together using 2 strips at a time. For this rug, 2 1/2" strips were used. I will be posted about the complete process soon. For now, see the before and after photo below and watch a quick video to see how the rug is made, one knot at a time.
