A reader asked me recently about how to crochet with fabric strips to make floor rugs and other things. These are sometimes known as rag rugs because they are often made with rag fabrics like old clothes or sheets. I have never tried this but I did a little research and put together a collection of blog posts and tutorials that will hopefully point you in the right direction.
This post from Linda on CraftSytylish gives some great advice on creating your strips of fabric and then how to work with them.
Once you have your fabrics ready, Lisa from The Red Thread explains how to make a basic basket.
Sugar Bee Crafts has a fabulous step by step tutorial for making a rag rug including videos and how to join your strips.
The New England Quilter has some suggestion on keeping your rug flat – and her’s looks gorgeous!
Once you’ve mastered the simple rag crochet, this purse from Carla Barrett at Feathered Fibers looks like fun!
After all that reading I’m definitely adding this to my To Do One Day List!
