Finished Rug from newspaper plastic Liners

finished rug
I love it. It feels good to walk on it and the rug stays well on wooden floors, doesn't move.
What a fun project - many things to improve but pleased in the overall concept.

Plain Weave with Newspaper plastic Liners

For about a year now, I collected the plastic liners which come around the daily newspaper.
They were nice and thin. This weekend I finally started weaving with them. I did not want to cut them up, but realized soon that I needed to slice them horizontal to get a long piece of plastic .
My idea was to weave a plastic outdoor rug, 30 x 60 inches.
