Buy two Ikea sheepskin rugs and sew them together for one long runner with a new and organic shape. Does it get any easier? All you have to do is sew the lining edge of the rugs together with a multifilament polyester thread, the kind used for upholstery or canvas. It took me about an hour and I ended up with a great new rug that cost me $20 (I used the faux sheepskin rugs). It works great in a hallway, a long narrow area or beside a bed.
