image Bright pink rag rug

You may not know but  I am self-taught in the art of crochet/ rug making ,

(although my grandmother did do a lot of yarn crochet way back when.)

   Reading a pattern is way out of my league.

so when  I find a pattern with lots of graphics I try my best  replicate.

I think I nailed this one.

Here is  7 hours   of hand crocheted fabric to create a 90cm Rag rug.

  1. How absolutely gorgeous! I’m not usually a fan of pink, but those colors together are just lovely, and so Spring-like! I can’t even begin to tell you how jealous I am that you can create something so stunning without the use of a pattern. Well done, indeed!

    • Gee thanks so much Gray ,if there are lots of piccies I can fumble my way thru otherwise I make it up and hope for the best. with this one piccies were really big and clear so it was quite simple. I will try and find a link as it was a freebie I found on line. Once again thank you very much for your lovely feed back 🙂 julianne

  2. Really well done. One of the things I like about your work is that I never notice what I call “the ugly stitch”, the join in a row or start/end of a row. Such pretty colours as well.

    • OMG Crochet Missy Thank you so much for your lovely feed back . I’m not a fan of the “Ugly stitch” and have seen it on other rag rugs ,I make a big effort not to get it so am thrilled that you noticed. Thank you again for support and feed back. 🙂 Julianne

      • It is one of the things that bugs me most when I crochet. I hate it when I make a really Ugly Ugly stitch. This is something that I haven’t completely mastered yet so I certainly admire your handy work. It can spoil an otherwise good piece of work.

      • It does and sometimes it hard to avoid and with fabric it can make it quite bulky and stand out even more. You have really boosted my ego thank you again.:) Julianne. PS it could be the angle I take the photo’s that hides it. hehehe
