Ripping Out Your Rag Rug Project

Ripping Out Your Rag Rug Project

Hello Rag Rug Enthusiasts,

I posted this on my Facebook page a week ago and it received a lot of comments so I decided to use it as a blog. I usually don't do it that way but forgive me if you have already read it. 

I know many of you are reluctant to rip out your rag rug projects because it is not working for 1 reason or another but ..... I made a cat bed for my little 5.5 lb cat and she sat in it a few times but became disinterested. I thought the problem was it was WAY to big so I decided to rip it out and make a much smaller bed to feel cozier. The long and short of it is: Pulling out this rag rug project and starting again made this little kitty very happy. Don't be afraid to rip out your project and start again if it is not working.

With a smile,

I agree Erin. Making a 3Sisters rug – 3 circles atrached end to end and 1st time around it looked wonky. Okay rip it out and try again. This rug measures over 6 foot long.
