I bought a rag rug at a discount store that said it was made from recycled fabric - mostly polyester.
I could never find a rug that was the right size to go all the way under the guest bed and a few feet on either side, nor could I find two runners of the right size, style, colors, and price. Then I saw this for just about $15 and thought I’d try cutting it in half to suit my needs.
I drew lines about 1/2 and inch on either side of the center, that I then sewed over with my sewing machine to keep things pretty much together. After that I cut right between the two sewn lines.
I had intended to sew a binding over the cut edge, but sewing this thing was not a great experience and I couldn’t imagine adding binding tape would be any better. They’ve withstood a pair of 3-night guests really well, so I’ll keep an eye on them and reassess if necessary. If there were in a heavier traffic area, I would probably have sucked it up and added the binding.
