Toothbrush rugs

Just goes to show there's always something new to learn! I can't remember what I was originally looking for on Google ( you know how one link leads to another..................), but I came across this:
http://www.ragrugcafe.com/toothbrush-rugs-complete-video-instructions-part-1-beginners
Going to have to have a go and resurrect the Rug Challenge; I need some for the cabin, adn whilst I have accumulated a few from the tip/charity shops etc, it would be nice to have them handmade by myself. Now need to start collecting useful fabric and getting strips organised.
Anyone else made one?

Hi. Love your blog. I have made a few rugs now mainly out of my kids outgrown clothes . Really simple and easy to do but i'd stick to cotton . I made a couple out of t-shirt and sweat shirt material but they were a bugger to keep in shape as i worked the rug . Good luck with it. xxx Julie
