Saturday, January 12

All fixed up.

my box of scraps waiting to be crocheted into a rag rug......
my button cans, my scissor basket.........
top of my big dresser..........

now I can look out the window and see pretty flowers when I sew, have better light, and maybe even a breeze!

I like what you have done with your sewing room. Put coffee mugs away!? What ever will I drink out of when I come???
Oh, never mind, I am putting coffee behind me............

I made a rag rug a LONG time ago. I need to remind myself how to again. I like all the fixing up you did!
Love,
Chas

There are always plenty of coffee cups somewhere in this house to choose from. Just come and see mosbb.

I love to crochet rag rugs......it's kind of like a quilt to me because of all the fun ways to put colors.

susannah.......you noticed my Pokey!

Hi there! How exactly do you do the rug? EXACTLY. :) I want to do one of these, and I have bags and bags of scraps. I just never knew I could use them for a rug.

cut fabric into strips one inch wide

the longer the strips, the easier it is to crochet them

tie them together and roll into a ball just like you would yarn

crochet with a HUGE hook......I think the size I use is *N*

crochet in a circle, just like you would with yarn.......only get ready to get a work-out!!!

Olivia uses an even bigger hook and cuts sheets up into strips about three inches wide.........I'll see if I can find a picture of one she has done
