There are many different ways of making a handmade rug. These methods can be done with the help of some basic implements and your creativity. A handmade rug can be fulfilling to make and is usually made to certain specifications which are coordinated with the area where you intend to pace the handmade rug.
This is one of the most popular ways to make a throw or a runner for the table. Crocheting your very own handmade rug can open the faucets of creativity in your mind. There are many different designs and color combinations for throw rugs which are hand made. A handmade rug for the express purpose of being throw for a table (smaller) or a sofa (bigger) can be fun to make.
This type of handmade rug can be made into a smaller size (for tabletops) and bigger sizes (for floors). A braided handmade rug can be great if you have plenty of left over fabrics. The leftover fabric is braided and then sort of sewn together to create a rug. The usual shape of this braided handmade rug is circular although, there are also rectangular ones and other shapes if you wish.
The colors of a braided rug can be whatever you wish them to be. Depending on what leftover fabric is available or depending on what you want to buy, the colors can be bought to suit the room where you intend the rug to be.
Latch Hook Rugs
Handmade rugs made with this technique are really beautiful to behold. This method to making a rug is actually very simple with the use of an implement which is called the latch hook. This wooden and metal implement is used to push the yarn into a sack like base and then hooked on to the other side and knotted. There are no limits to the sizes, colors and shapes that you can make with this handmade rug method. A slight variation to the latch hook method is the rag rug method. Both similarly use extra or leftover fabric and yarn which are cut to similar proportions but the rag rug fabrics are just pushed through the sac like base and then knotted.
A handmade rug is something that you can be proud of making. This is because the effort you have spent making it will be seen as it is used in our home, wherever you put the handmade rug.
