Stephanie on A Scoop of Sherbert saying, “A few years ago, when I visited my friend Kyrie’s dorm room, I was beyond impressed with her well patterned area rug at a cost of less than $30, and the way to make it is totally out of expectation.” She started hers own by getting carpet squares from craigslist as nearby carpet store, cut them into smaller squares if necessary and arrange them into patterns. She used QuickSeam Adhesive to stick the rugs on floor then. But I perfer to using a fabric or another thin mat as bottom so it can be removed easily.
