27. Strimler -- 27th Rags!

    For at væve videre, måtte jeg hive dynebetræk i strimler igen, så meget af min dag har set sådan ud. Hvert nøgle er en strimmel, kun ikke det mindste, det er nemlig hele to. Det knak!

In order to go on weaving, I had to tear old covers into strips. My day - or a part of it - looked like this. The balls are a strip each, except the smallest - it is two strips. Urgh it broke.

  1. Uglemor,

    A few years ago, I made a lot of rag balls from some old clothing I no longer wanted. The girls then used the strips to make plaited rag rugs. I never thought about weaving with rags. I will be interested to see your finished project! Lots of different coloured rag balls look fabulous when displayed in a basket. I can imagine you having something like that on your shelf.

    1. Rag rugs are a Nordic thing, I think. And I make all the strips as I go. So far I've been using only bed linens for strips. I might expand into old clothing, even if it tends to get worn out with 5 sons ;) Your colourful strip balls sound like a good thing to exhibit. This fall I have planned to join a handcrafting show in our "Weavers' Guild" I might prepare such a basket, old sheets, a pair of scissors and my loom. Then people could have a go at making strips and weaving.
