    braided rugs
  • This refers to rugs made from braided yarn, or sometimes from strips of used cloth, which is why some braided rugs are also known as ‘rag rugs’. The braids are usually sewn into concentric circles or ovals, although they can be made into a square or rectangular shape.

  • Braided rugs are made in several ways: tape, tubular, yarn and flat. Braided rugs are also called rag rugs because they could be made with many different materials, including whichever rags are lying around.

  • (Braided rug) The braided rug was a staple in early, Colonial American culture. Settlers used scraps of clothing and other excess materials to make a floor covering that would provide warmth and protection for a particular home's inhabitants and guests.

Little House on the Prairie

Little House on the Prairie

Excerpt from my most recent (not quite finished) book, "Seasons of My Life"

This old house floods my mind with childhood memories of days spent reading Laura Ingalls Wilder books beneath a tree in our backyard. I spent many hours reading about the adventures of the Ingalls family and to this day am in awe of what they endured and conquered.
When I was 5 my maternal grandmother made me a beautiful rag rug using fabric in various shades of blue, my favorite color. She carefully tore the strips of fabric from discarded clothing that had seen better days, skillfully braided them into a rope, then lovingly crafted the rope into an oval rug just for me. I cherished it and it was perfect for sitting upon while I read. I wish I still had it.

Flower Basket was hooked for a class in leanring how to finish a rug with a braided edge. I love the look -- though the class was a bit of a disappointment. We never got to butting the ends of the braid. I stil don;t know how to do it right. But I like the rug.
