Step by Step Instructions to Make Your Own Rag Rugs — Day to Day Adventures
In 2010, I wrote up instructions and took pictures of how I make a rug for a series on Day to Day Adventures.

My parents have been working one room at a time to restore it. Here are just a couple photos from the main floor entryway and living room. Enjoy! When the one-room schoolhouse…
Hand braided wool rug
Beautiful hand braided multi-color 100% wool rug. Approximate size is 2'x3' - perfect for in front of the kitchen sink or a fireplace. Rug is meticulously hand laced and will last a lifetime. Photo with table is not an available listing. It is a sample of a large custom-made area rug. My rugs are made from new and felted wool; I rarely blend used wool in my rugs unless I find a beautiful piece or a special plaid that I know would make the rug pop. Made in a pet-free/smoke-free home.
