Creating Me

Friday, April 4

I decided to make a braided rag rug. I had checked out a book from the library about them last month, but decided that I would have to wait till I found some cheap fabric. Then I saw that Martha Stewart used bath towels for the rugs. I bought 3 towels (white, light blue, and dark blue) at Wal-Mart for $1.50 each. Martha used nylon thread but I thought fishing line would be stronger and hold up to washing better. So far it's coming along well; although the towels are dulling my scissors very quickly.
