Amish Knot/Toothbrush Rug Tip #1

Friday's Amish Knot/Toothbrush Rug Tips

Tip #1 Do-it-Yourself Tool!

When I first started making these Amish Knot rag rugs, I used a homemade tool. You can use a safety pin, or strong wire fashioned into a loop. I have even used a pair of tweezers with tape on the ends. Homemade toothbrush rug tools are not ideal, but until you get a tool, they will work!  

DIY Tool idea from Whitehouse Whimsies and Rugs

I am now selling Rug Starters and Rug kits. I take care of the hardest part, the starter. You may purchase a mini starter, a mini starter kit, or an entire kit- everything you need to make your own rug. Or you can just buy the tool!

Visit my Etsy shop for options. I add new starters and kits often.

Happy Rugging!

*These rugs are referred to as both Amish Knot Rugs and Toothbrush Rugs.
