My eco friendly rainbow rag rugs

I have developed a passion for crocheting rag rugs with t shirt yarn. I thought just like my other passions, this too will disappear from my system with time. I was wrong. I kept making them. I am still making them. Upto now I have made 6 rugs. So I thought, why not open my Etsy shop.

So I did.

Its called rainbowrugs

It has two of my most recent rugs. They are made to order and I need about 3-4 weeks to get them ready for shipping.

They are easy to care for. Machine wash in a pillow case. Dry flat. form into shape while still damp.

These are the ones I have made so far:

My very first one: I use it now near my bathroom.

This is my second one. I made two granny squares and attached them. It is now used as my bedside rug.
The above hexagon is my 3rd rug. This was when I realized the potential for using lovely colours in my rugs. Not the dull colours in my first two! I found how to crochet an African flower from craftpassion blog. This one I gifted to my sister-in-law who loved it and said she didn't feel like putting it on the floor.

Then I made this one. Again the pattern was from Craftpassion (Giant doily rug) . But somehow I had made a mistake and it came out not an octagen but a heptagon. But looks good all the same. I gifted it to my aunty Vijaya who uses it as a prayer mat.

Then, I had to make one for my sister and my brother-inlaw. They had helped me (including my parents and brother and my sister in law) to face a very trying period in my life in the recent past (hence my silence from the blogging world). I am still recovering from that, but I am ok. I smile, I work, I have fun with my family. And I make rugs ;-)

This is THE rainbowrug.
I am at the moment making a granny square rainbow rug for my son.
I hope you will take some time to browse my shop.
Thank you.
