But i never yearned to own one or to make one myself until about four years ago. All my friends make rugs hooked ones crocheted ones Woven ones and braided ones. Quot they re easy to make Quot my friends assure me whenever i Admire a new addition to their numerous creations. Quot ill be glad to help thus gradually almost unnoticeable the seed of desire to own a handmade Rug was sown. It broke into Blossom one Day when while cleaning out a closet i found myself calculating How Many braiding strips that too tight skirt would yield the outmoded wide legged Slacks the Woolen shirt with the worn elbows and the Coats which were too old fashioned to be Given away. Spontaneously i Cut the Good material from each piece of clothing and piled it on the floor. I could see myself entangled in Miles of Woolen strips that were intended to be braided Woven and hooked into dozens of fancy rugs. After my assiduous refusals to join the rigging Circle of my friends i was reluctant to admit that at last i had Allen victim to the throw Rug set. I did no to know How wide to Cut the strips How to braid them How to sew the braids together and How to shape the Rug. So i just Cut the strips the Width i thought they should be much too wide braided them into a rough rope without turning in the edges and sewed them together into something resembling a mexican hat. A second try was an improvement. Without the Center Lump it looked like a salad bowl. After several false starts however i discovered quite accidentally How to fold the material and that a two Inch cutting Width was quite adequate. I also Learned by trial and error that weaving the braids together with packaging string was easier than sewing. I used a thick Long darning Needle and wove it head first through the loops alternating from Side to Side. A two foot Center Start will always result in a Rug two feet longer than it is wide.

Fore a 24-Lnch Center will make a two by four or three by five or four by six toot Rug. A one foot Center would result in a one foot difference. In the beginning my Rug grew by leaps and Bounds but was then interrupted with Many rep pings until i Learned to keep it Flat by skipping or double stitching some loops around the Corners. When the Rug measured about five by seven feet it was too big to work on a table and i had to Inch my Way around on the floor. One Day i rolled up the Rug and stood it in a Comer Quot to give my sore Back and Knees a rest Quot i said. I vacuumed Over and around it promising to take it out again at the first opportune moment but i pushed it a Little deeper into the Corner each time. That was tour years ago. The moment to haul it out did t arrive until about two weeks ago. Since then i have managed to add two seemingly endless rows. Some Day the Rug will be finished but it wont live up to its originally planned eight by ten foot size. I be also changed my mind.
