My sister and I made one of these for an anniversary gift for our parents in 1965 using one dollar rug samples and some kind of tape, did they have duct tape then? They used that multi colored rug for 15years under their dining room table. Now that i think about it for a year, we stitched them together with thread and big needle there was no tape to do that.
