rag rugs

Thank you so very much for posting those sites for making rag rugs and such. THis site is so wonderful, as we can always depend on someone to come up with the info we want and need!I'm so sorry I haven't posted my thank you before much has been happening with my health and family things, I have not even gotten started on those rugs; nor had time to do much on the computer.
But, God bless you all and thanks again for your help! If and when I ever get started on those rugs, I will let you know how they turn out!

Glad to see you are still here, we must travel in different circles here at FC. I scouted around my linen closet and found several flat sheets missing their fitted also some scraps of material I have bought here and there, so didn't cost me anything. I've started one tshirt rug, finished one sheet rug and working on another one right now... very easy except the cutting up material part. Good luck and nice to meet you.

Rag Rugs

I see that someone posted how my grandmother used to do them and that was with strips of material and single crochet. I like to make braided rugs. I wish I could tell you where I got the kit but my memory isn't what it used to be. BraidCraft fabric braiding basics for everyone by Shirley Botsford. Basically, you take three strips of material, sew them into strips then braid them like you would braid hair or dough or anything! Then, I handsew them together. The booklet gives patterns for hearts, baskets, pillows, all kinds of different things. Good luck!

Thanks for the links I will be checking them out later this evening.

I was wondering if any of you would like to post pictures of your finished rugs. I am just in the process of saving material for my first rug.

I can't wait to start.

Mine weren't anything fancy... I just measured it the length I wanted and went up and down till it was the length and widgth I wanted. They unfortunately did not sell at our mall so I used them for ourselves. I do like them alot especially in our bathroom, kitchen and bedrooms as we have hardwood floors.
