Scrap Rugs

Years ago my Aunt Rentha had a sampler that I think came from the Depression era, “Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.”  The idea always stuck with me. I have a real hard time throwing away something without seeing if I can put it to another use. These rugs are examples of that. I keep scraps of yarn from projects in bags by yarn weight and every so often they become something useful and pretty. I needed some soft rugs for my bathroom so I made these. Nice thing is my husband loves them, I used up some scraps and got soft things for my feet!
