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, Missouri 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.
These rugs are so easy, no sewing or crocheting. All you have to remember is down in the hole and up in the loop.
