Have you ever had trouble finding fabric that would work for your DIY projects? Are you turned off by the prices of more luxurious fabric? Well, there is an alternative. You can repurpose rugs as fabric for your DIY project.

Repurposed rug projects are not only eco-friendly but also inexpensive. Just pick out the type of rugs that are right for your project.

You can repurpose rugs into purses, wall hangings, pillow covers, even fabric for furniture! The possibilities are endless!

If you are looking for inspiration, here are some of my favorite repurposed rug projects:
