I really love the idea of making something new out of something old.
I know many before me have perfected the art too. My first attempts at recycling rags has been making crochet mats and rugs.
I got the idea while I was cleaning out my linen cupboard.
I watched a few YouTube videos to learn how, after checking out many great examples of #ragrugs on Instagram.
So far I have made two circular rugs and one rectangular mat.
I have given two of these away as presents and keep the red and blue one at home in my kitchen.
After cutting up the fabric into strips you join them either by sewing or knotting, creating a ball of 'yarn' to be creative with.
I look forward to making more rugs and mats. In the meantime I am following some wonderful makers that you should follow too. Happy crafting!
