Easy Homemade Rug or Repurposing

Browsing second hand and donation stores is a favorite pastime of mine. It's even better when I score.

At Goodwill, I found two tapestry-like pillow shams for 59 cents each that I converted into bathroom rugs. Although they were pretty thick and cushy already, I wanted them to be thicker so I cut an old towel in half and inserted a half into a pocket at one end of each sham. If I had wanted them even thicker I would have inserted a whole towel in the pockets by laying it flat and inserting one end in each pocket.

Next, I folded the shams in half (along the long edge not the narrow edge) and whip stitched the edges together with matching embroidery floss pulling the floss though the gold cords that adorn the shams' edges. The sham rugs add a classy touch and look much better than a folded towel on the floor. What's even better? They were inexpensive!
