So super excited to show you what came into my hands this week! “Rugmaking and Macrame” by Anna North and Noreen Gladwin, straight out of 1974.
I have been on the lookout for a rug that features the colour palette in our living room – lime green, turquoise and browns. I want wool for all of its amazing inherent properties. But is it just me or are rugs expensive?! Especially wool. So I thought I’d love to try and make one myself.
I adore the pink toned rug with the Saarinen chair – what a great look!
When I was at Wellington Polytechnic I remember the Textiles Students manking rugs with a gun like tool that shot the yarns into the base cloth. It look liked great fun and seemed easy! I am sure it was not – given the price of rugs – or perhaps the equipment is prohibitively expensive?
This one is pretty but my boys would have biscuit crumbs embedded into that shag pile before I could blink.
Although its having a come back I don’t. think I’ll be attempting a macramé over skirt anytime soon!!
Has anyone out there made a rug? I’d love your advice please.
