  • Joining carpet pieces

    I'm looking for ideas on how carpet pieces might be joined together into a whole (e.g. rugs made from carpet samples).

    The gaffer tape solution which is posted all over the web in tutorials isn't strong, only lasts a few months and doesn't work well with small carpet pieces. I've successfully sewn carpet piece in the past with fishing line (so the stitches are strong and invisible) however this technique only works well with larger pieces due to the time it takes and amount of work. Has anyone here tried any other techniques and been successful with both large and small carpet pieces? My other idea was to use wood glue to glue the pieces to a hessian sheet. I haven't tested this but the hessian base on most carpet pieces should merge well with the hessian sheet.

    thoughts or ideas appreciated.
