Rag crafts : 25 contemporary projects shown step by step
The ultimate in thrift crafts, rag rugwork is enjoying a timely revival with the interest in recycling materiels to produce something new, beautiful and useful. The textile materials are cheap or free, the techniques simple to grasp, and the only equipment needed to get started is a simple frame to hold the backing material and a hook. This book illustrates the work being produced by contemporary craft artists, and shows how to create 25 beautiful and varied projects. These include cushions, accessories, a teacosy and matching eggcosies, a hat and a bag, as well as many rugs and wall hangings. A techniques section explains how to use a range of materials, from old woollen blankets and dress fabrics to shiny candy wrappers. Whatever you decide to make, this book will help you turn your rags into riches.
