Rug Making LinksI love the i­dea of mak­ing my own rugs. I hav­en’t done it yet, but I am de­ter­mined to ev­ent­u­ally. In the meanw­hile, I keep col­lect­ing ar­t­ic­les and pat­terns for rugmaking.

My favorite technique?

Something easy. So for me, that would be either a crocheted rug or a sewn rug. I can’t wait to get started!


I love crocheted rugs. Try them with rug yarn, t-shirts torn into continuous strips, and long strips of bedsheets.

I haven’t collected a lot of information on braided rugs from the internet because I own books on the subject. The books are The Illustrated Guide to Rug Braiding by Vera Cox and The Braided Rug Book by Norma Sturges.


All the rugs in this section are created from remnants, samples, doormats or inexpensive sisal.


The fact that I am not much of a painter does not stop me from dreaming.


I love to sew and I always have tons of remnants that I am desperate to find a purpose for.


Hooked rugs are my sisters current favorite needlecraft. She makes only large ones and then gives most of them away. I am the current beneficiary. I recently received a 3×3 foot country scene done in wool strips.
