Rag Rug | Layers of fabric

I feel a wee bit sorry for my self today. I have back pains and have been eating strong medicine to ease of the pain. The house is a mess and all I want to do is continue to crochet on my rag carpet! Add more layers of fabric yarn to the project.

Rag carpet in the making

I got these balls of striped fabric Wednesday when Maria and I went thrifting. I have been wanting to weave for about two years, but never found the right place and time. It will come someday I’m sure. But since Li inspired me to crochet with fabric, I wanted to give it a try when I found these balls of fabric.

The wonderfull colours just makes me smile. They are so me.

Sunshine and summer colours: pink, orange, green, yellow!

    The rug is going to be beautiful. How lucky you are to find the balls of fabric. Someone’s unfinished project. Will you show us again when it is finished? I think that is a great thing to do while recuperating from back pain.

    i hope you feel better soon! back pain is never fun. i really love the rug you’re making. i’ve been wanting to knit or crochet something out of fabric for awhile now… it looks wonderful!

    I am so glad to see your rug!!! I am creating a reading nook on our back porch and I need a rug to cover up the ugly grey floor paint. I thought of crocheting one for myself because I have a lot of fabric, but I wasn’t sure if it would look good.

    Now that I see how fantastic yours looks, I can try one for myself. I’m glad to be able to choose my own colours. I doubt that Ikea would have exactly what I want

    Thanks :)
