What to do with a rag rug that is getting raggy?
Actually, this rug is a redo a couple of times over!
First time ~ over a decade ago, I made strips and sent them away to be woven... no loom of my own at that point ... I kept two rugs for myself to use. Unfortunately, these rugs weren't very tight and when they bit the dust, I didn't want to throw away all that work I did on the strips.
I figured, why not use them over again? The rugs weren't very large, and I had a large area to cover, so I decided to make them into one rug. I took them apart and wove them into new warp. I loved it!
Happily used the rug until... a new puppy decided it was tasty and ate a hole out of the middle.
Back it went to the loom again! That rug lasted a bit longer. Until this last winter when it met it's fate.
Now it has been re'Newed again!
New life for an old rug. Can't get any better than that!
