When you have growing children and a job that requires you to dress smartly, you usually end up with a lot of clothes in closets, clothes that are too old to wear or that no longer fit. While I try to donate some of my old clothes, there are times when clothing is stained or holey and only good for the rubbish bin. But now there's a way to put all your old clothes to very good use - by making a rag rug.

For this rag rug, Megan uses a selection of pink, white and grey fabric scraps - both stretchy and non-stretch.
