I have read a lot of self-help books lately and one thing that all of them have in common is that they say you need to learn new skills. I realize that it is important to keep learning and growing so I decided to take a class at the local fabric shop in Michigan. The fabric store had many classes on sewing, teaching how to make aprons, pillowcases, and dolls. They also taught classes on quilting, knitting, crocheting, and rug making. The rug making class was the one that caught my eye. I was getting tired of the rug in my bedroom and thought it would be really fun to learn how to make a new one.
So I went to the fabric shop in Michigan on the appointed Saturday for the rug-making course. The class was all-inclusive and provided the fabric and tools to make an eighteen-inch by thirty-eight-inch rug. I figured that it would be good to make a small rug before I tackled the five by eight foot rug that I needed for my room. Rug making was very simple. We tore the fabric into two-inch strips and then cut a small dash in the end of each strip. I didn't have to sew the pieces together; we knotted them. My rug turned out really well and I can't wait to get started on my big rug next. Share
