Book Description

Learn eight different rag-rugging methods and use them to create 30 stylish and practical items for yourself and your home.

Elspeth Jackson details eight different methods that will help you learn the art of rugs from rags, and inspire your craft creativity. Each chapter focuses on a different technique, from Shaggy to Locker Hooking, Loopy to Two-String Loom and more. Elspeth will show you the skills, tools and equipment you'll need for each one, as well as providing advice on choices of fabrics and design. She will help you to identify common mistakes that you might run into, helping you build a strong foundation in the craft. Each chapter includes step-by-step instructions for a traditional rug plus two other projects for yourself or your home, such as placemats, bowls, wall hangings and more, so that you can show off the new skills you've learned. Using upcycled fabrics, only a few basic tools and simple techniques, you'll master rag-rugging in no time!
