I will not be viewing this site again because of all the unnecessary ad garbage I have to work around to look at the craft. That ruins the enjoyment of the article.

There used to be a spray on type that you could use on the back of carpets. I would search the new for that. A few years ago I purchased a very large rag rug at World Market and I also purchased a non-slip backing that had adhesive on one side. But I think it was fairly expensive. But personally, I'd just buy the rubber shelf liner (mine is called Safe Shelf). I'd just sew it to the bottom side of the rug. I recently knit a cover for my steering wheel (the pattern is on here! lol) and rather than sew 4 smaller pieces of the shelf liner on the inside, I ended up sewing it all the way around. My steering wheel cover doesn't budge. And the shelf liner isn't very expensive. I use it under cutting boards and all sorts of things. Good luck to you!

Does anyone know how to put that backing on the rug that makes it more slip-proff? I want to use the rug in the bathroom; but I don't want anyone to fall. Help!
