HOOKED!


Yesterday morning, Autumn had an orthodontist appointment. From there we ran several errands. The girls and I are attending a Ladies Retreat this weekend, and we are to be making crocheted rugs. I went to get my supplies, and stopped by my friend Angela's house for a quick tutorial. Oh my... this is addictive! In just a few hours I've produced a 21" round rug! I'm adding more to it today...

It is beautiful - this is something I've wanted to learn how to do! I can knit but haven't mastered crochet. My mother in law taught me how to knit - I need to find someone to teach me how to crochet. I tried looking on the internet, but I can't pick it up. I need to be next to someone doing it and see them. Can you teach me? Make me a video? Anything? Pleeeaasssee! :)

Wow Tracy! I've seen these before but didn't know how to make them. Do you buy the strips of fabric, or do you have to make them from scraps. I'd love to make some smaller versions for kitchen chair pads if they'd be soft enough.
Yours is so pretty!

Tracy said...

Karen,
Yes, you do buy the cloth is strips. These are cut on the bias so they won't fray. You COULD make your own!

And yes, these are very soft. Ooohh... I hadn't thought of chair cushions! I was thinking hot pads, coasters, etc. It actually looks really good sitting on top of my square coffeee table!

Karen said...

Thank you, Tracy! I'll have to look into these! I hadn't thought of hot pads! Cool idea! ;-)

Christina said...

That is AMAZING!

Great idea! It's very simple crochet, isn't it? I just need to find the right fabric.

Steph said...

That is very pretty! I bet that is lots of fun too!

Jennifer said...

I love this! You are so crafty and talented. I taught myself how to knit, but for some reason, I'm all thumbs when it comes to crocheting. Perhaps one day I'll get a one on one lesson :o)

I can't wait to hear all about your retreat. It sounds like so much fun!

You are so talented-God has certainly given you the gift of working with your hands. The rug is so pretty!

Lori said...

Cool. Love it.
I should learn how to crochet rugs. I've just crocheted dish clothes and pot holders.

Tina said...

Do you know how to make oval ones? I think I would like one for my upstairs bathroom in front of the bathtub. We need to do lunch or breakfast soon...I need a pick me up...kidney removal was a little harder on me than I first thought.

You are very talentedTracy!!

Gena said...

That is so pretty! I would love to learn to do that as well. I can crochet, but haven't tried to make rugs.

Jodi said...

I love this, Tracy! So pretty! I like both yours and Karen's ideas ... hot pads and chair pads.

With so many asking for a tutorial, I hope you will do one! :) This is so pretty!
