Being fifty-something, I know low-hanging fruit when I see it.
“Fashion a rag rug” is definitely the low-hanging fruit of my Bucket List … and it’s no surprise that that’s where I’ve made some headway.
Here’s how I managed it.
Over a lazy lunchbreak I viewed some how-to videos on YouTube and learned I’d need a special tool.
I showed Mr P. Half an hour later he emerged from the shed with this, fashioned from an old coat hanger and some electrical tape.
Keen to incorporate some red into my rug to match the new red walls in my office, I thrifted a bright red bed valance for $3 to pair up with some worn white sheeting I’d earmarked for rags. Perfect.
After a wobbly start, I have this so far:
It measures about 30cm across and I love the honesty of its rustic, home-crafted aesthetic. In other words, it’s pretty messy and uneven.
I have a long way to go … but it’s a start.
