Karen shares with you how to make use of those little but lovely scraps of fabric.
Making a rag rug from scraps
A great idea of how to use up small scraps of fabric – any length as you can subcut them – but approx 1″ wide. Silk, denim, cotton strips, sari waste, indeed anything seems possible and its so simple – isn’t that true of all the good ideas. Tactile too.

Here are a couple of helpful hints from one of our subscribers: (thankyou Jean)
I’ve been making these for years – call it a crocodile bodger – with finer fabrics I make the pieces longer and tie a single knot – then you don’t need to put them so closely packed. With denim I would grab a corner as it goes through more easily. Fleece garments cut up easily and don’t fray. Perhaps these hints will help some folk. Jean
