Here we have the results of my experiment with the various shapes that can be created and achieved with rag rugs. Here I began with a circle for my rag rug tutorial you can read it here
I decided to try out making a flower as it isn’t something that I’ve seen before in the rag rug world. I love the whole practice of working with recycled fabrics and sustainability. I love the exploratory nature of design and construction. The rugs themselves become little works of art that will last for years and years to come. No one has been exploited in the process and no materials are wasted.
I happen to think they are particularly interesting and pretty to boot. I recently set up a group on flickr for other rag rug makers to contribute to. Please do go and have a look there if you are interested in rag rugs either to look at or to make. You can find the group here
Here is the rug before I had a play with the photograph.
