We also made a step by step DVD which took place in our barn – you can hear the chickens on the ground floor and a combine going by on the road – ha! I’m told the instructions are good and easy to follow.
Here is the finished rug still on the frame. That’s Pam on the right.
Here it is next to another rug I made a few years ago. Both rugs were made using strips cut from colorful t-shirts. Rugs can be made from leftover quilt fabric, drapes, sheets, wool, denim, or anything else that would make an attractive rug and is washable.
If you are interested in learning to make these durable rugs from recycled fabrics, we can send you the book and DVD and include the postage for $20. Send your check or money order to Country Threads, 2345 Palm Ave., Garner, IA 50438.
I am wondering if we could do a “Rug Along” like the Gypsy Wife quilt-along. What do you think?
