Funny Farm

A fearsome foray into my fiber follies. I talk about weaving, knitting, spinning and dyeing. Some chatter about the sheep, goats, pigs and chickens.

Nine Rag Rugs

denim rug

It looks so much nicer in person. Here it looks bumpy with bad selveges. Not so.

love the fabric hem over one created from rug warp

multi-colored warp and black fabric

flannel rug

and a matching flannel rug

denim rug with white denim stripes

taupe sheeting with multi-color warp

rosepath design showing front and back. That's the hem in the center

Black and white warp and black patterned sheeting

another rosepath rug but showing the back. Problem. I was careful to run each fabric strip, face up, in each pick. I was very pleased with the lighter shade on the reverse side of the rug. However, half way through the color changed. I can't figure out why. One one side (up while weaving) the color is consistent. The color shifted on the other side. The fabric is all from the same source and was washed. No idea what happened.
