It’s official, I’ve become addicted to making 3D rag rug flowers. Ever since I came up with the pattern to make my first rag rug bouquet, I’ve been on an absolute spree. The thing is, I find it therapeutic (which can’t always be said about some of my larger rugs). It’s a quick and fun project where you can make 7 flowers (a whole bouquet) in just one evening!
This project is great for rag rug beginners and experts alike and is ideal for using up little offcuts of pretty fabrics that you’ve been saving (but even less pretty fabrics look good too). We made all of the flowers below using the shaggy technique of rag rugging using either a Rag Rug Spring Tool or latch hook, but you could even play around and incorporate some loopy rag rugging into your flowers.
As I’ve been on a bit of a roll, I thought I would put together a blog post to share some of the rag rug flowers I’ve made so you can take inspiration if you do decide to make a rag rug bouquet for yourself (you can buy a Rag Rug Bouquet Kit or hemmed hessian pack over on the Ragged Life Website).
If you make any rag rug flowers, please send any photos over to email@example.com for me to share below – it’s always great to see what people make and I’m sure other crafters would love to hear your tips.
So, here are some of my individual rag rug flowers and how they work in a rag rug bouquet – I hope you find it inspiring and colourful 🙂
The next bouquet was made as a spring bunch of rag rug flowers. I used mostly pastel colours and even used a bit of lairy black and white leopard print fleece. This is a good example of how adding a bit of interesting greenery to a composition makes it look so realistic and pretty.
Well that’s all I have by way of flowers for the time being but we’ll be updating this blog post as we make more so stay tuned for more flowers 🙂
