The center of the rug is from the old rug in the bathroom. I took it apart and then reused the material in the new rug. The blue is material I bought and then cut into strips. The plain white ball that you see in the top two pictures is from a bedskirt that was falling apart. The outer white is actually a polka dotted fabric that I bought. I love how it turned out and how comfortable it is under my feet. There is a lot of cush and absorption to it. It is also very heavy! I have started a second one made out of t-shirts and a jersey sheet that was wearing out. It takes a considerable amount of time cutting the fabric into strips but I like the thickness of these rugs. I will be making more!..
