You know you get woollen scarves that felt a bit, or clothing that, well, has seen better days and a re-fashion to wear is out of the question? (I expect a barrage from everyone.. 'what, not refashion??')
This is a handy thing to do with all the extra bits of material from the discarded garments, old scarves, clothing, blankets, fleeces.. anything a bit ropey.. Just use hessian and find some rag rug tools, the technique is dead easy, once learned.
I've not done a tutorial on this, as I was learning as I was making.. made a rather nice cushion, which I'm really pleased with..
This technique could be used to make a rug or bag too.
