Has anyone ever made a rug from polyester slacks? I am guessing,.... cut them into strips, roll into balls, single crochet then sew into a rug....... I bought ten pair of slacks to make a rug for DS..... Will I need a cuttting mat and rotary cutter or will scissors work?

Yes, I have one in my kitchen and love it.

Cut the fabric into 2 inch squares, fold each square in half to make a triangle, sew triangles into a long chain with each point in about the center to bottom third of the triangle in front. Use denim or other sturdy fabric as a base and sew the chains in radiating circles onto the denim spacing the chains so that they hold each other slightly upright.

I know this is not the best description. I will try to post a photo.
