Upcycling ~ by The Patchwork Heart ♥

Rag rug made from recycled t -shirts
 in Cath Kidston colours.

 I have so enjoyed making this rug, 
my favourite so far
and yes
I have decided to keep it!
It is looking beautiful beside my bed.
I have made 3 rugs this summer holiday, 
not bad, 
the next order is a heart shaped rug
 in lipstick pinks!

Rag rug tutorial available on my blog

This is so cute. It will remind you of all of wonderful summer blooms.

This is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! I love it! Wonder how long it took you to make this?

The rug took me about 2 weeks along with other crafts and days out! The rugging is quick but I kept running out of fabric and had to wait for the next car boot to buy more pink for the background!
I am enjoying it beside my bed ;)
Thanks for the nice comments

That is very cute, I love the flowers! That is one thing I have always wanted to try (one more thing on my list, LOL).

hummm... I was wondering, Heather, is a "car boot" like what we here in the states would call a "flea market"?

The Patchwork Heart said...

A car boot sale is what you would call a garage sale! It is usually held in a field or parking lot.We pay a small amount each car and then set up tables and sell our junk! It is a great way to make money and a great way to find treasure! They are usually held early in the mornings on Sundays about 6am onwards!
