      #3, the Rag Rug Tutoril, is about making your own “yarn” with rags! :) I believe she used old clothes.

    I’ve made the Textured Waves rug in greens to match my bedroom. It’s absolutely great. I’ve had several people ask where I bought it, and when they find out I made it, they ask me if I can do one for them.
