A little history of the Toothbrush Rag Rugs. Using a toothbrush handle to make rugs from scrap fabric came to the United States with Scandinavian immigrants and grew in popularity during the Depression and World War years. Rugs made with toothbrushes look similar to braided rugs, but offer more durability. While the original craft used a sharpened toothbrush as a needle, specially-made rug-crafting tools are available today.
My name is Sheila and I am from Lake of the Ozarks area. I started Toothbrush rag rug making about fifteen years ago and now I have started my own little business selling the kits. I enjoy making rugs and hope you will too.
The item arrived on time and was as described. This is a gift, so I can't comment on how good the directions are yet. After a quick glance, they seem easy to follow. I am excited to have rag rugs in our family again. My great, great aunt knew how to do them but we have lost her instructions.
