Crafting One-Of-A-Kind Rugs

In a time of uncertain supply it is important to make the most of what you have. With Christmas coming up I have been contemplating new projects. By a stroke of luck I found a rug canvas at a local auction along with a bag of scraps. Here is what I am working on.

Ragpoint

As you can see this canvas had a design printed on it. You could easily design your own using a fabric marker. Here is what you will need:

Fabric scraps ripped into 1 inch width.
A good pair of scissors, crochet hook to tuck in ends and a pack of needlepoint or yarn needles
And of course your rug canvas you can purchase from Michael’s or any craft store. This is pretty inexpensive depending on the size you purchase.

You thread your needle with your fabric and work this project using a basic needlepoint stitch (You can find videos on YouTube).

While this is not a project you will finish overnight it does work up pretty quickly. After you finish your design, select enough fabric of a neutral color to work the rest of the canvas.

Have fun crafting…
