A co-worker mentioned that she wish I could make rugs...of course it was the second thing on my crochet agenda and here goes...the rug was done in various stitches and I used acrylic and boucle heather grey yarns...I have cut a rug saver to be placed under the rug...question is should I permanently affix it to the underside of the rug...

Wow you did a beautiful job :clap IMHO you should not permanently affix the pad to the rug, one of the plusses about that type of rug is that it's fully reversible, and it wouldn't be if you attached the pad :2c it's funny I have to go through that explanation almost every day I work at my first job---I design and sell braided rugs for a living :D

The rug is fabulous!!! I love it. You could baste stitch the rug saver on the bottom with big stitches that could easily be removed to reverse the rug at a later date.

I just cut and pasted the link and got it to work.

It's really lovely! Great job! I agree with the poster above who said to not affix the non-slip rug thingy to the bottom. It works better when it is not attached.

Love the rug! I would keep the rug as is so that I can turn it over if the unavoidable happens.
