This is my very first Handmade Monday post. I have been busy making a rag rug this week. I had lots of left over scraps of fabric from other projects. I had also bought some remnants from ebay for a patchwork project I haven't got round to yet.
I will be painting the floor in my craft room soon and I will need a nice rug to put on the down once it's done. I cut out lots of strips of fabric and plaited them to make a long strand of fabric. I then stitched the plaits together to make a rug. I will be putting the step by step instructions up on my website soon.
I haven't quite finished it yet as I need to tidy it up a bit. I will be using some hessian for the backing to protect it.
