I keep forgetting to add a comment to bring these posts back to the top. Thanks again for looking.
I have made heart shape, round and oval ones through the years. Remember my Grand mother tearing up thread bare chenille bed spreads and making rag rugs, nothing was ever wasted. I still have the large wooden crochet hook she used. I also rdemember trying to make braided wool rugs but never got the knack for those. You are doing a lovely one. Like the colors/Lillian
Thanks so much Lillian. I have had blue tones in my kitchen since the late 70's I am really enjoying the red.
I bet it takes lots of time untill it is finished, but when done it will be great. You can already see this. Pls continue !
I've been wanting to make one of these for the longest time. Love yours!
Thank you! It took all my strength to get started. Now I am wondering why I waited. It is hard for my hand but so worth the effort.
Wish I could run over to your house and learn how to do this.
The stitches are chain and single crochet. You just need those 2 stitches and a P hook. Oh and a zillion strips of 1inch fabric. Thanks.
Excellent - looking forward to seeing the finished product!
Thanks! Me too.
An amazing result so far, well done. Sandra.
It looks very cheerful and it's amazing how different it looks than the fabric. Is this the same fabric you used for your kitchen valances last summer?
Thank you. The fabric at the top is the same fabric. I pulled other fabrics from my stash that had the same colors Light and dark reds and several shades or hues of white. I wanted the scrappy look with the same color scheme.
Great work, but it is the kind you need to rest your hands in between. It is amazing the difference it makes in looks between the material untouched and the rug.
Thank you. Different fabrics just same colors.
Love the Valentine colors. Have you seen the crocheted rugs out of recycled bread bags? Really nice, not what you would expect, and they work up fast.
Thanks! Yes i have seen those. Just prefer fabric.
