5.0 out of 5 stars " THANK YOU " FOR YOUR WONDERFUL BOOKS January 26, 2012
Format:Paperback
I am a thread crocheter & ran accross these books by the Ruglady I am so glad I ordered the Rag Rugs Basic plus the DVD. Going from thread to material was easy for me and has opened a new door, I absolutely love doing these with very simple and easy to follow instructions using the basic stitches. I have made some beautiful rugs & have people wanting to buy them. If you want rugs that will last for years try making your own rag rugs.
I would recommend these books and DVD's for anyone thinking about trying rag rugs or trying something new to crochet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very much worth considering July 28, 2011
Format:Paperback
This short book, which includes patterns and pictures, is all about crocheting rugs using rags, not yarn. Crocheting with yarn is very well-known, but I have never heard of crocheting with rags. It sounds like a good way to get rid of excess fabric.

It talks about how to attach the 1-inch wide strips of fabric together, in order to make longer strips. Before you even start cutting your fabric strips, it might be good to estimate just how much will be needed; the book covers it. Another important point to remember is making sure that the rug will stay flat when it goes on the floor.

The book shows pictures of different kinds of rugs. There is a basic round rug, a rectangular rug (where it's OK to change colors every few rows), the well-known oval rug, a heart-shaped rug, a slice rag rug (that looks like a round rug that has been cut in half) and a harvest rug. Instructions are included with each picture, instructions that are written in Crochet, not in English.

Those who know how to use a crochet needle could do a lot worse than buy this book. The patterns and instructions seem like they are easy-to-follow. It is very much worth considering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great And Simple To Follow Crochet Book October 11, 2011
Format:Paperback
I bought this for my wife because she's already into crochet and I thought that this would be a good addition for her to learn some new patterns skills and make some beautiful rags for us at home. My wife love's the book and she says that the book is laid out in a way that it's easy to follow but will still produce some amazing patterns.

Being a little girl during the 60's I remember with great pleasure the many colorful rugs made by all the handy housewives of those days. Strangely enough I have never thought of the possibility of making some myself. With this smart book, containing the basics on how to empty the leftovers in the closet, turning them into useful, colorful and beautiful rags, this is now about to happened to me. I am so grateful for this book with its easily available inspiration - thanks!! :-))

Avid crochet girl here. Avid, but still new to it. I loved how this pattern collection had all the basics I needed but couldn't seem to find in stores. It's a good beginner's thing for sure! This is a collection that's fun to play with, so I recommend it.
