at the wonderful progress of the gals who are crocheting with fabric strips! I've been making "rag rugs"(or rugs from fabric strips since I don't use 'rags') for almost 2 years now. I've been asked many times "how do you do that?", so I finally wrote a tutorial in early May.My friend Norma jumped on board right away with cut green fabric strips. That was May 6th. She did a great job with her first attempt...but she didn't like it.
She ripped out the green, and went to work with assorted scraps...a new beginning on May 8th. Grandson Colin sat by her side as she hand stitched strips together and then crocheted them. She's HAND STITCHED all of the strips together ever since. Colin is her constant advisor and cheerleader. Needless to say, he LOVES what his Granny Norma is doing.
By May 25th, Norma had completed her first round crocheted rug!! And guess who got to carry the rolled up rug home that day??? *VBS* Colin is the proud new owner of that first rug *VBS* Way to go Norma!!! I'm so proud of you. And did you know, Colin has a big sister?? Yup, a little sweetie named Julia, who is also a big fan of things Granny Norma makes.
No surprise that Norma got right to work with a "special" order purple rug for Granddaughter Julia *VBS* This is how much progress she had made by June 6th. I'm not sure of the size on this one, but Colin's finished at 32". The size you make one of these is up to you...entirely! It's nice to have executive control *VBS*
