A year and a half ago I started to dream BIG. People liked the idea of making rag rugs. TONS of people visit Day to Day Adventures daily to see how it is done! But my dream was to get as many people started with rug making as possible. I wanted to provide the tools that a beginner rug maker needs to get started. It started small with an eBook and now has developed into a Rag Rug Video Course!
Having the right tools makes a task so much easier! Like having a sharp needle before you start sewing! Or the right color paper for a scrapbook page! Who wants to stop crafting to go get more supplies because you ran out? Not me. Recently I needed to replace one of my treasured tools, my wooden rug making needle. Thankfully I found a source "close to home" for getting a new one!
You know that stash of craft supplies that you never use? Maybe you bought them when the ideas were flying and you really mean to get to it but never had the time? Yeah me too! I had a little time to do some crafting so I knew that I wanted to use some of my sad neglected supplies out my stash to make these sparkly spring bunny signs!
I had the paint, canvas and glitter just waiting for a project! I bet that you do to!
This school year homeschooling has looked DRASTICALLY different for our family. I am only teaching one child now and he's in HIGH SCHOOL. That means I only have 3 years left!!! 3 years to make our homeschool fun and full of learning for our youngest child!
This is so strange to consider after having four children in our homeschool for so many years. My oldest was in Kindergarten 20 years ago!!! And now two of our older children are in college and one has graduated from college, is married and gainfully employed. The years fly by!
Don’t you just love handmade rag rugs? Somehow they make a room warmer and more colorful! There are several ways to make a rag rug: braiding, weaving and by making knots. My favorite type or rug is made with the Amish knot. This post is all about how to finish this type of rag rug and care for it!
