The rag rug is the first of two rag rugs I wove a couple of years ago. Both are in my upstairs bathroom. I wove this rug using 25 years worth of purple and blue sewing fabric scraps, a mixture of lightweight and medium weight cottons and rayons. I save all of my fabric scraps. The warp is blue 8/4 cotton rug warp.
I found the machine knitted fair isle cotton socks for only 99 cents this week at a thrift store. Actually, I also bought a second pair that is similar, but has more turquoise than purple. Are these Lisa socks or what??? The fact that they match the rug so well is a clue.
After weaving the rag rugs I went on to weave the rep weave rag kimono sakiori jacket. The jacket post provides details on how I prepare rag strips for weaving using bias tape makers.
