Old Curtain to New Rug

Hocus Pocus



I’ve had this old cotton shower curtain for years. In the closet, that is. It has some bleach spots, a few paint spatters, but is a quality fabric in very happy colors. In recent years I’ve used it for picnicking and such, washed it, folded it, and placed it back in the closet, high on a shelf, with an inkling that it was to become something else. I just had to wait to see the creation it held within.


The colors are faded, yet still vibrant, bright and cheerful. THe day before yesterday I saw what it--or MOST of it--is to become. What you see if the beginning of a throw rug.

Thank you all! The rug is, as expected, tiny . . . so will likely accomodate table-top service as I seek more fitting fabric to continue the floor model.

I see trips to Goodwill and Salvation Army in my future!
