Hi, Hope your week and weekend has been terrific, ours has been wet. I do like the rain, but I wanted to paint the bathroom and in this wet its just not feasible.
So what do you do on a rainy day when you cant paint but want a change.
Well I changed the colors of the accessories in the bathroom and made 2 little rag rugs to match :)
The first one I braided and hand sewed together ( The one at the back of the photo), the second one ( at the front of the photo) I used a proses they call the toothbrush rag rug as they use a tooth brush for a hooking tool. I just used my fingers.
Must say I would probably not do a braided one again, I am not a big fan of hand sewing, But the second rug I made I am hooked on this style ( also known as the Amish rag rug)
( Ooh before I go any further I need to tell you something very exciting, Well, I couldn't get the label glue off the Jar , it was tacky and stuck fast. I tried every thing I knew and it wouldn't budge.. So I googled and well, you would not believe what got it off===== peanut butter,, Yep I just smoothed some over the glue bits and rubbed like they said and off it came, as easy as that! amazing Yes?)
On a couple of little rag rugs and a mini bathroom make over. Now all I need is a dry day to paint.
Here at rag rug cafe
I am off to make a rag rug for the kitchen
Until next adventure
