DIY: Learn how to turn bath towels into an area rug

I filmed this video back in 2006 for HGTV and it's recently been found on  It's a pretty cool craft! You need 3 towels, old or new to make a small-medium bathroom area rug.

Here are the step-by-step instructions:
  • Fold the towels in half and cut into one-inch strips. You'll need about 13 strips to make a medium-size rug.
  • Now take a strip in each color and sew the three ends together.
  • Start braiding the three strips folding the ends underneath so the raw edges don’t show.
  • Connect and sew three more strips onto those strips and continue braiding until you have one long braid.
  • Sew the rug together as you shape and coil it. You’ll see the circular rug begin to take shape.
  • Sew the ends together.
