Is this a good idea- fabric decorative rug?

I'm on a tight budget, so I can't afford an area rug. But I'd like one in a half-moon shape with my bed on top. Would there be any problems making a sort of decorative-rug out of fabric from someplace like Jo-annes? Just sew and go, right?And if there's not some glaring oversight I'm missing in that idea, what sort of fabric? Upholstery? Outdoors? Quilting?


I've seen rugs quilts made from strips of material I think they are gorgeous totally different than everything else that's on the market today! Someone has used a bit of initiative thought of a different item to decorate the home. Before I got married my intended wife were on a tight budget between us we made a woollen rug from wool - It was a dusty job for a sensitive nose, but got there in the end it adorned our home for many years it was my pride joy for making it I'm a bloke! If you can make a fabric rug in much the same manner as i did looping the fabric within itself, as I did with the wool, you will be able to make a lovely rug I'm sure! Cheers!
