Cotton fabric is one of the best fabrics for making a rag rug. Pre-cut fabric strips can be used or you can cut your own fabric.  If you are using yarn to make a rug cotton yarn is perfect and easy to care for.
The first step to making rag rugs is to turn your fabric or “rags” into yarn. Cut the fabric into strips and either sew or knot the strips together to be used as yarn.
Crochet rag rugs are a popular way to recycle old materials. You can also purchase t-shirt yarn if you prefer to use it for your rag rug. 
There are different styles of rag rugs to crochet including rectangle, square, oval, and round.  Here are a few tutorials and patterns to crochet your rag rug project.
