Rag Rug : part 1 {Getting Crafty}

Sometimes I might pin something (on pinterest) and it will get a surprising response. I photographed some crochet I was doing and got some positive feedback. I thought I would share with you how it was done. 

Today Part 1: preparing your material. 


I have a few jersey cotton baby wraps, that I just loved using, but they are stretched out and I don't think anyone would want them as they are! They are the perfect material (stretchy cotton) to make into a rag rug. With a good sharp pair of scissors cut a strip until about an inch from the end. Then cut back in the other direction. Wrap the material as you go to prevent tangles! Makes one continuous strip. The 'turns' will be a little bulky, but will be a nice little design element!

Have fun!
