Crafts: Rag rugs
I asked about a form of reversable rag rug my mom used to make. The strips were about 3/4" to 1" wide and were accordioned onto a needle and string. She then, somehow, placed the accordioned strips side-by-side and fastened them together around the string rather than stitching the sides of the strips together. Does anyone know what this type of rag rug is called and, after the strips are accordioned on the needle and string, how does one actually make a rug out of it??? I've tried but just can't seem to get it to work with what little I remember about the procedure (over 30 years ago). HELP!!!
