Handcrafted Rugs is broader in content, covering both rag and yarn rugs made by braiding, felting, needlepoint, prodding, hooking, locker-hooking, tufting, knitting, and simple weaving. Hardy also touches on other techniques such as peg-loom rug weaving, crochet, weaving stick rugs, pieced applique rugs, and strung or knotted rugs, and she also includes.

The designs in this book are contemporary and fun. The Retro Flower Rug is inspired by the classic flower shapes used by Andy Warhol and Mary Quant in the 1960s. Lavender Field is made from soft woolen blankets dyed in shades of green and mauve to represent lavender flowers, foliage, and surrounding fields. Lavender buds are even sewn into the lining to gently scent the room. A wonderfully rustic Braided Woolly Rug is made from cream and white blankets and black and gray coat and skirt fabrics. All of the basics are covered - from preparing the rags to finishing, cleaning, and caring for the completed rugs. Once crafters have mastered the techniques of hooking, prodding, braiding, and weaving, the next step is to design their own rugs.


Burgas
After admiring my mother in laws homemade rag rugs which she had purchased at a church bazaar, I sent away for a few books on the subject, certain that I would be making rag rugs in a few weeks. Unfortunately, there are several methods used to create rag rugs, and some are more complicated than others. The books which I purchased had instructions for buying or hand crafting huge wooden looms, in which to weave the rugs. I recalled my aunt making rag rugs years ago, and I never remember her having a loom in her home. I was fairly confused at this point. I put the books away on a shelf, to collect dust! Then, by chance, I spotted Clare and Juju's book in a local bookstore. After leafing through it, I realized that THIS was THE book on making rag rugs, by hand, using nothing more than a marker, burlap, a rug hook, and cloth strips! This was the method that I recalled my dear aunt using, it even features the same rugs that I had first admired at my mother in laws. If you want a simple method to follow, resulting in beautiful, sturdy, handmade rugs-THIS IS THE BOOK! By the way, I purchased this book from Amazon and their other books as well. Just beware when choosing rag rug instructional books, read carefully the method highlighted, and you won't be disappointed! Good Luck!

Wanting to start my own business, I decided to try my hand at selling handmade (don't like to use the word homemade because I don't want my products to look homemade) items at the local flea markets/craft shows/fairs, etsy.com, etc. I am not the craft type, don't have the patience for crafting little things, like earrings and such, and then the idea of rag-rug making came to me, which would require little sewing (don't have the skill or aptitude for that either), and I'll have to say, I am just starting on my first project, but this book is a wonderful guide for beginners, and some of the designs are gorgeous! I can't believe they're made of rags. I actually don't use rags, simply because the idea of cutting up perfectly good clothes that can be given away to charity seems senseless and selfish, so I purchase the material I need from the local craft store and online (as wool cannot be found in this town).

There is absolutely nothing negative I can say about this book, which has actually inspired me rather than discourage me. Definitely worth the money.

This book has great instructions for hooked/prodded rugs, with lots of pictures and helpful hints for the beginner. I especially liked that they've provided pictures of what's happening both above and below the rug as you're working. And , although I liked many of the rugs as is, it seems it would be quite easy to make changes to most of the rugs to better suit your tastes or decor.
Unfortunately, you will have to buy some tools if you're a beginner and not all of them are inexpensive. Also, be forwarned that if you don't live in the U.S. (and maybe even if you do, as seems to be the case with the spring clip tool) the hooks, and even the burlap, as I've discovered, may be quite difficult to find. Finally, I wouldn't recommend this book if you're interested in making braided rag rugs because there's only 1 braided rug in the book and it's just a a bunch of braids laid side-by-side and sewn together, not the type where one continuous braid is wound round and round to form a large oval or circle.

I should have looked more into this book. My own fault. But I really was looking for a more simplistic way to make a "rag rug"

This book is not at all what I expected nor is the description adequate. I ordered it because of the star ratings. I am a very 'crafty' person, and amm used to complicated detailed patterns with quilting. Yet after looking through the book I was totally overwhelmed at the amount of work and the technique used - with burlap or canvas grid. Patterns appeared very difficult - requiring many tools and materials. It would be perfect for a more advanced rug hooker but I cannot see myself ever using this book. I am sadly returning it. It will suit an experienced 'rugger' but I was wanting beginning braided or crocheted rag rugs. The title is misleading in that this is NOT rag rugs as I have seen - but rather hooked rugs with the same technique, various patterns and colors. .

I like that there are great tutorials, pictures and clear instructions. There are several styles available, but the style I was looking for was only close to one of the projects listed in the book. But it's a good starting place for experimenting on my own.
great have made a number of rag rugs using this instructional book
