Ginger Hendrix from Wienerdog Tricks shows you how easy it is to make a Crochet Fabric Rug in this video, which includes Ginger’s signature style of humor, ease and her awesome make-it-work attitude.
Use yardage that you just can’t seem to find a good use for in your sewing, incorporate your old sheets or find thrifted fabric to make these sturdy, washable rugs. All you need is extra fabric and a large crochet hook (Ginger recommends a P-size hook). Even if you’ve never crocheted before you can easily make these, and an older child would probably have lots of fun with a small version of this project too.
Visit Wienerdog Tricks for more from Ginger, including info on her new book, Time to Make: Throw Yourself at Your Creative Life. Ginger writes,
- “You don’t have time. Or space. You might not make any money at it; so why bother making something? Why sew or carve or glue or draw? Because our souls were made to. The steady-hearted place that comes with making seems to still our souls: our hands moving, the hamsters that usually ride stationary bikes in our heads strangely calmed. And that experience is a vastly more important thing to foster than anything we actually produce. Time to Make lobs a question you might need to ask yourself: why wait any longer to grab the creative life you’re meant to have?”
