Making a Rag Rug Wreath with Ragged Life


One day last week I had the pleasure of spending the day learning how to make a rag rug wreath with Elspeth from Ragged Life and some lovely bloggers (Maggy from Red Ted Art, Ali from Kids Chaos, Liz from Me and My Shadow and Emma from Mummy, Mummy, Mum).

The supplies
I won't go into too much detail about how to make a rag rug wreath, because Elspeth does a much better job of explaining it on her website.  But I will say that I had a lovely time learning how to make it, it was not difficult to do, and it was just nice to make a grown up craft for a change!  (I don't even remember the last time that I did that!)  

Making a start
Saying that, with two kids at home I clearly have not had a chance to finish it.  All of my good intentions of spending some time everyday doing a bit more have not worked!  So instead of waiting until next Christmas to tell you about it, I'm showing you now so that you might have a chance to have one done in time!

The finished wreath!  (Not mine, lol, this is one that Elspeth made!)
You can get all the supplies and follow the directions from Ragged Life, or you can sign up for a workshop and have a crafty afternoon like we did.  I highly recommend this option (especially if you have children at home!) as you'll get some dedicated time to learn and get a real start on your project.  And be sure to show me what you make!
