Description
Do you have a closet full of clothes that you no longer wear? Do you have a pile of scrap fabric from previous crafts lying in a corner? Don't contribute to the landfill when you can learn how to make beautiful rag rugs from your throw-away fabrics! Rag rug making is approachable and fun for crafters of all ages! With no loom and no machines required, rag rug making is a timeless homesteading tradition that emphasizes upcycling scrap materials and fabrics, making the craft low cost, easy for beginners, sustainable, and eco-conscious. After all, why buy new rugs when you can be self-sufficient and make your own? This engaging and accessible project guide will show you step-by-step how to make beautiful rag rug crafts completely by hand from start to finish! The book begins with a stunning gallery of rag rugs made by leading fabric artists from around the world, where they share their inspiration and which techniques they used. You'll then find complete overviews on the tools you'll need, and learn how to design, size, and transfer your own pattern, choose a color palette, use ready-made, recycled, or non-traditional materials, choose a rug backing, and create your own colors with fabric dyeing. Then, the techniques and projects will take you through creating rag rugs with methods including rug hooking, traditional and miniature punch needle, proddy, braiding, latch hooking, and quillie.
