My Granny made rag rugs and sold them for $2 and $3. I remember her sitting in her
rocking chair tearing up old shirts and other pieces of old clothes.
She was always in sort of a puff of fuzz.
Her house was dusty because of her craft.
I had nice pieces of fabric to use to make strips for this particular rug.
I have cut up old clothes to make rugs.......
to the point that my kids would ask me if I was going to
cut THEIR favorite clothes up.
The clothes they actually had on.......
You gotta start with a ball of fabric strips. It takes a little bit of time to tear them and then tie them. It's a fun craft. I enjoy it because I know my Granny enjoyed it.
I learned some things with this rug. If a rug starts to ruffle............STOP.
Don't keep crocheting like it isn't happening.
It can't be fixed.
Almost every rug I've made that is any size at all, has been ruffled.
It won't happen again.
I had this rug practically finished and had to unravel it.
It was curly and ruffly.
That's not a good thing for a rug to be.
This size rug takes me about a day to crochet.
I enjoyed making this one in certain colors.
Usually my rag rugs are like a crazy quilt.
This one is for a present...........and special colors were called for.
What is your favorite craft?
What do you enjoy?
