This listing is for a brand new Ragged Life Rag Rug Starter Kit which is perfect for rag rug beginners. It includes:
- Fabric Scissors (super sharp scissors to make cutting the rags easier) - Latch Hook (the main tool we use for both rag rugging techniques) - 100 x 60cm Hemmed Rug Hessian (no need to do anything with this hessian so you can get rag rugging straight away!) - Wooden Cutting Gauge (a time- and effort-saving tool to make cutting up your fabric pieces that little bit easier. Ours has a wide, deep groove to prevent your fabric scissors getting blunted) - Instructional DVD (with an intro to the equipment, tips on how to prepare the fabric and "how to" videos for both rag rugging techniques - shaggy & loopy) - Instruction Booklet (With easy to follow step by step instructions & photos) - Marker Pen (for sketching out your design)
All you need to do is provide the fabric which is easy as any old fabric can be used... t-shirts, fabric offcuts, cotton, fleece, silk... you name it, we've used it!
