Come learn the lost art of making beautiful and functional braid-in rag rugs! This method uses upcycled cotton or cotton-blend t-shirts and requires very little sewing. All materials are provided to make a small forest-green rag rug, though we welcome you to bring along any other cotton and cotton-blend t-shirts in other colors that can be introduced in your rug. If you have any of the following notions and tools, please feel free bring them along – if you do not have these, rest assured that we will have plenty to share!: Fabric scissors sharp and sturdy enough to cut through two layers of t-shirt material; rotary cutting mat and rotary cutter, clear rotary-cutting acrylic ruler at least 12” long; size 8, 9 or 10mm crochet hook(s). Registration is required.
