Another rag rug - utility style

I'm burning through some old fabric, pillowcases and bedsheets that I have been adding to the "will-never-use-in-a-quilt" pile over the past few years of donations given to me here-n-there.  I've simply never gotten them boxed up for donation yet.  I'm SOOOO glad I never got around to it, because I am able to play around with it now as I continue to practice and work on my rag rug skills.  I know I'm losing where exactly the rows end/start because of the slight warped-ness of the edges;  therefore, I added a top/bottom border to this rug in an attempt to "line things up" a bit more.  It is now housed in front of my washer/dryer....

Raggin' along.

Happy Saturday!

I'm loving your rag rugs, there is something so very homely about them.

I know I missed some posts so what size hook are you using? And how wide are the strips of fabric? I keep a lot of the strings I cut off of the ends of bolted fabric and this looks like a great use for them. Usually I use them to tie up packages of quilted gifts but I would rather make rugs or mug rugs with them.
