Rag Rug

Hi there! I am finally done with this rug!! A friend asked if I would make her one for her bedroom. Of course, I have nothing else to do …right?!

This is a really easy craft, even your kids could help you.You only need 3 things…

You can purchase these non skid rug helpers at home improvement stores, craft stores, Walmart…very inexpensive. Three different colors, 1 yrd each.of a lightweight, almost sheer poly. Be sure it has some stretch to it. You can use any kind of fabric…this is just what I used. You can use one of these hook tools, crochet hook,  or any kind you have.Here’s how I did it.

First you need to make long 1 1/2″ strips using all the material. Then you need to make 6″ strips. You can do this by wrapping it around something 6″…I used a book. Try a picture frame,etc. Keep wrapping around and around and around. When you come to the end of the strip, cut each end….like making a pom pom..

Starting from one corner, go inside down  into one opening, then back up in the next opening…

It will look like this:

Pull each end tight and tie a knot:

This took hours and hours. Do this while watching a movie…every night for  a couple of weeks.

It is very easy to do, just a bit time consuming…but I think it’s worth it!

The happy look on her face  was so worth the effort.

      1. I still don’t see anything incredible in my recipes. I am not a chef, I am just cooking for my husband and myself, and guests – we love guests and have company practically every week. This is a little home kitchen, not a restaurant!

    1. I told you once I will tell you again in case you think I was kidding…my mind is always in overdrive…I worked on 3 projects today…The wood one took hours…the wood is too hard…should of choice a softer wood.

  1. Lovely! It looks like a good activity for when the brain is tired, but the hands don’t want to be idle. When my son was little I did a few of those yarn rugs in this manner. He would sit next to me and hand me the colors. I loved those nights!

  2. Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to know a lot about
    this, like you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you could do with a few % to pressure the message home a bit,
    however instead of that, that is magnificent
    blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

  3. Hi would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a honest price?
    Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
