Project 27: InspirationJuly 19, 2011
Making a rag rug has been on my project list all year, but two things happened recently that caused it to move up on my priority list. The first is that I collected bags full of old t-shirts to bring to a reuse event at MakerFaire but didn’t get them to the person who was taking them in time. The second is that this photo by Stephanie of A Common Thread showed up on one of the craft blogs I read. Isn’t it amazing? I’m half tempted to go rip up a comforter and just recreate it.
I started ripping up my t-shirts last night and am on my way to having a tidy collection of rags for this rug. I’m leaning more toward braiding than knitting at this point, but who knows what I’ll decide by the end of the week?
