rag rugging again
For Christmas Santa gave me this enormous crochet hook. I mean, how does he know exactly what I want? And I have been promising Ella for months that I'd make her a rag rug for her floor in VT- she often sits on the cold floor playing legos or playmobil - but couldn't face the amount of time and effort involved in making another plaited one, but thought I'd have a go at one crocheted from old t-shirts.
The cutting is very tedious (thumb blisters and all), but I only started this yesterday afternoon. And yes, these are all real rags- old t-shirts and hoodies and old pillow cases made from t-shirt fabric. Hopefully it will do the trick in Ella's room up there - although I'm not sure how that red will look with the pink (!BLECH!) painted floor in her room....
