This beautiful crochet rug is made from individual flower motifs that are sewn together. It will look great in the bathroom or along side your bed. I made this rug for our bathroom and I like how it brings a unique handmade touch and uplifting tone to the room.

For this crochet rug, I used patterns for the four different flower motifs and a pattern for the Irish leaf motif. You will find the patterns I used in the instructions below.
You are welcome to use the same motifs I used or you can be unique and use any other flower motifs that you like.
I made my rug in two colors, but it will also look good in one solid color.
As this rug is made from individual motifs, you can make it any size or shape by making more or fewer numbers of motifs and arranging them in different ways.
The pattern for this crochet rug is also available as a print-friendly, styled and advertisement-free PDF file. You can get it from my Etsy Shop. The free pattern is below.

Flower Motif 4 – make 2
For this flower motif I used my Easy Summer Flower pattern.
Leaves – make 5
For the leaves I used my Irish Leaf motif pattern. The Leaves can be bent to the right or to the left. I made all 5 leaves bent to the right.
To make sure that the ends will not come out during washing, I recommend securing the ends in the following way: weave in the ends as you would normally do. Then, using a sewing needle and matching sewing thread, securely sew on the yarn ends to crochet fabric.
Arrange all motifs with their WRONG SIDE UP in the pattern you like. It will be like putting together a small puzzle.
Then sew the motifs together in every connected point with a long sewing needle and the same yarn you used to make your motifs.
Sew the motifs together in the following way:
Thread a long piece of yarn into the needle (I used yarn about 30-35” long), make 2-3 stitches to sew two motifs in first connected point (1), *then insert the needle into the row of stitches (2) and bring the needle to the next connected point, make 2-3 stitches to sew the motifs together at this point (3).
Repeat from * until the end of yarn in your needle – see picture below (for instructional purposes, I used a contrasting color of yarn to make it easier to see).
Fasten off, thread a new piece of yarn and repeat.
To make my crochet rug non slip, I applied on the back this Plasti Dip Super Grip Fabric Spray. Please note this spray has very strong smell so use it in a well ventilated area.
I applied it in the garage and left it to vent for a couple of days. You can also try to use other solutions: attach small non-slip rug pads, rug backing, etc.
Regardless of the method used, please ensure the rug has some form of non-slip character to it.
I hope you enjoyed this flower rug crochet pattern!
