One corner of my craft room is finally complete (you definitely won’t be seeing the other corners yet), now that I’ve made my very own little rag rug. It’s made from the teeshirt yarn I made a while ago.
I used this rug by Little House in the Suburbs as inspiration, but had to improvise a little because the instructions were a little confusing, somehow you go from 4 to 8 strands of yarn, but I’m not sure how, mine only has 4 strands. Braiding a rug is a lot easier on the hands than crocheting, which is good because when I tried to crochet with this stuff, there was a lot of pulling of yarn and swearing and red hands.
I have lots of ideas for bigger, better, more colorful teeshirt rugs, including stripes and maybe gradients. the pattern it creates could lend itself to a lot of color and other shapes, it could easily be made into a circle or a more elongated oval.
Also, just so you guys get the scale of that chair in the first picture, here is me sitting in it, looking a little irritated.
now at 5’1″, I’m not exactly tall, but this chair makes me feel like a giant. In a good way. A friend and former next door neighbor gave it to me after I sat in it every time I hung out with him and constantly yammered on about how much I loved it. It is now one of my prized possessions.
