My Creative Space- Rag Rug


This project has been stuck in the 'almost complete' basket for months, but finally, I got round to finishing  this one off. I am so pleased I did as I just adore the finished look of it and the girls are overjoyed to have it in their bedroom at long last.


It was made using old woolen blankets, platted and then sewn. A long, and at times tedious job but in the end, well worth the effort. It makes the perfect warm play spot for the girls as the weather starts to cool and they begin to play inside more and more.

  5. Fantastic! I used to live in New England in the US and these kinds of rugs are really popular there - not that I have ever been brave enough to make one. The colours you chose are lovely. Becks x

  8. Lovely work Lou - its nice to get the aerial shot and see the colour variegation - the texture is gorgeous. I can imagine how warm and spongy it feels. How did you find working on that scale and may I know what size hook you used?
