As you can see I’m coming towards the end with the rag rug. For some reason it seems to be taking forever and a day, which is funny really, because when I made the last one it seemed to get done so quickly. I guess the fairies haven’t been helping in the middle of the night this time!
A word of warning about making these rugs…actually there should be a couple of warnings:
- They make a devil of a mess. Using a normal rotary cutter you end up with gazillions of long frayed off threads, whereas a serrated cutter is a lot better, but there are still billions and trillions of little threads. I have to hoover the wooden floor of my workroom at least 2-3 times a day because otherwise they would tread through the whole house.
- They also make a mess because I have reams of ugly fabric all over the place and what with that and the size of the frame, there is absolutely no room to do anything else….so sorry…no sewing this week at all!
- I’m also a little bit concerned as to how it is humanly possible that I have used up getting on for 15 yards of fabric – which is quite a lot in anyone’s books – and I can’t see any difference in the stash at all.
OK, OK, don’t tell me …..I have a problem. I know! But at least my problem is almost 15 yards less 🙂
