ArtistMum: Rag Rug Rage

What do you do with a stash of fabric that you don’t plan on using or is seriously out of date? Think Halloween prints or several versions of holly, snowmen, or snowflakes! Yes! That’s what I had in my fabric stash! And I wanted to downsize a bit… know……so you can buy some more???

Well, I got to tearing fabric strips and began crocheting them into a wonderful rag rug! There are many tutorials out there on how to connect your strips and how to crochet them. I used a very large crochet hook, size ‘S’, and my strips were about 2 inch in width. The finished rug came to be about 35″ X 51″, which was a decent size.

Here’s a YouTube link which I thought was good for beginners. 

So………attack your fabric stash and go make some rag rugs! They’re fun to make and look wonderful too!
