Confessions and Crafts
I have a confession to make ….. like lots of people I am a bit of a hoarder (massive understatement), and I was going through my linen cupboard the other day and came across all my children’s baby blankets!
I didn’t want to throw them away so decided I should make something with them. Now I’m not really a crafty person as such but after much deliberation and thought ( a visit to Pinterest) I decided to try a rag rug.
I like things that give me instant gratification ( another confession ) so this was perfect, quick easy, and pretty.
I cut the blankets into rough 6inch by 1inch lengths with pinking scissors and poked (TECHNICAL TERM) through a piece of hessian and tied a knot! before I started used a felt tip pen to draw a pattern and followed the lines …..easy peasy.
It’s easy to wash and my grandson uses it to play on, all in all, I’m glad I didn’t trow them away.
