what to do with scraps


I’ve been wanting to weave my own rug for quite some time now.  I took a weaving class at summer camp when I was a kid and loved every second of it.  I made a really cool pillow and mini rug on an old vintage loom which I’m sure my mom still has somewhere.

so today I had one of those “why didn’t I think of that” moments while reading the lovely blog from Beklina.  scrap fabrics, old scrap wood and nails?  totally added to my list of things to do when I have time.

    My friend’s grandma weaves those circle rugs that go in front of the kitchen sink out of old plastic bread bags. Like the ones “Wonder Bread” comes in. For real. That’s granny chic for you. I’ve always wanted to learn how to weave my own anything.

    I love this idea! I’m getting ready to make a braided rag rug with fabric scraps, but I never thought about building a loom.

    Oh my golly, you’re right. It looks like a great project! I love rag rugs, and never think about the fact that they are just made from rags… ha

    I took a class when i was little too and I, too, completely forgot about loom weaving until now! Thank you for the nostalgic post. I hope you do get around to this project, and post the finished product for us to seee!

    I LOVE when people use scraps to create something beautiful and useful rather than throwing them away! I never ever throw my scraps away, because I always find a great use for them. Way to go!
