Work In Progress - What will it be?

I usually know what the end product will be when I start a project. However, I started this project thinking that I was going to make a rag crochet basket. I have come to the point where it is time to start forming the sides of the basket and I find myself wanting to continue crocheting round and round on the level. I think that this well intended basket is going to turn into a lovely area rug. The last rug I made ended up being a room sized rug custom order for a friend - shown below. We'll see!

Very pretty colors and I think a basket design would be cool! I used to hook rugs when I was younger—this makes me want to give it another try! *Ü*

WOW!! I didn't realize these were made out of rags, it is so cool and amazing to see the bundle of rags that turns into 'crochet rope'
I can't wait to see the finished product

Most of my little baskets are made from extra fabric from sewing & quilting projects :)

ohh I love! I think it will make a fine rug. The oval one is stunning!
I made a braided wool rug many moons ago and at our next Friday night club we are going to crochet rag easter baskets for kids in the area. Won't be as nice as yours though!

Omg, that rug is gorgeous! I need to learn how to make this!

Beautiful rug! I love those little baskets - I remember making one in like 7th grade and absolutely love them, but never have made any since then. I'm sure whatever you do it'll be wonderful!
