I am always looking for new things for Daddio to do. He loves to cut up material and I had an empty rigid heddle loom so making a rag rug seemed like a good idea. In no time, he had a box of strips for me.
I had made a few wool rugs before so I used some leftover cotton for the warp.
Daddio was still cutting while I was threading.
Soon we had an assembly line going.
Sewing the strips together was fun....
....but truth be told, I had no idea what I was doing.
We were getting something that kind of looked like a rug and that tickled Daddio to death. He loves to make things that people need. Now he wants to make one for everyone he knows. Goodness, look what I started.
Here is a great tutorial on how to do it the right way. Our next one will be awesome.
