More about rag rugs...

There are so many ways to make a rag rug. I love to crochet them using cotton fabric that I have in stock. The rag rugs that I make can be purchased in 5 different shapes: round, rectangular, oval, half moon / slice or heart. And, with all the beautiful fabric available today the color choices are endless.
