HOOKED RUG


Normally we trim the selvage edge off our fabric to make any kind of projects. For me I do not cut it across, but gradually cut about half and inch away from the selvage edge and keep it there until I finish or almost finish the whole cloth and keep the strips aside. Have collected quite a lot of those and constantly hook those strips to make a piece of rug. A long tiny strips could also be included in this construction of rug by hooking 2 layers together for strengthening.


Well, .... IT TAKES YEARS to have a heap of those strips to make a rug for my sewing room . I have yet to complete mine...... here are just tiny bit of it...... about 30cm by 120cm now...... and I believe it is growing and forming.... lets make one for us, friends.



At least we save our strips of selvage edges and transform it into something beneficial........

I love this idea! I use my selvage strips for other things but a rug would make so much sense. Best wishes!
