Sewing the edges to rug:

Sew each edge strip to the long sides of rug for the border.  Do this using the invisible stitch along the edges.  Secure all the corners with an extra stitch, and pull any yarn tails into knitting. 

Your rug is ready for your bedside.  If desired, you may use with rug liners to prevent slipping on  wood or other slick floors.
