About This Class


Basic Chain Stitch, Single Crochet and Simple increasing techniques are taught in this class.

Learn how to crochet a small sturdy area rug using Fabric strips. The strips can be recycled from something else or this project can be a great way to use up an old fabric stash. 100% cotton is my preference but other fibers can be used as well. 

When we begin this project, I will explain exactly what you need to do. As we continue along I'll be explaining how and why you do what you do so that you will be able to make other sizes and shaped items such as a hot pad for your table or perhaps a small placemat for your pets bowl. You could also make a room size rug if you so desire!

You are only limited by your imagination! I hope you will join me and experience the joy and satisfaction of making your own crochet Rattie Rags!

I am loving this class!! Can't wait to get my fabric to start ripping and crocheting. I am a beginner crocheter and I'm looking forward to making my very first Rattie Rag Rug for our Bungalow!! Thanks so much Jeri for an awesome, easy to follow class. Be well!! Elizabeth (NeverHopeless)
I have always loved these rugs and wanted to make one of my own. Now I know how. Thanks Jeri for your simple and clear instructions. I can do this!
Fabulous and informative class! I love your sense of humor and the reminders to crochet loosely (I'm a tight knitter and crocheter). I really loved how you stressed the intuitive approach to making the increases... makes a whole lot more sense to me now than trying to figure it out mathematically. I also appreciated that you showed where the holes were sometimes by sticking a pencil or hook through it first. And the tips on cutting strips were wonderful. I heartily recommend this to anyone wanting to learn how to crochet rugs (even with bulky yarn instead of fabric... good good tips.)!

Hello, I'm Jeri, otherwise known as "Recycled Parts 4 Art". I love creating things.... I love vintage, re-purposing, crafting.... I love to collect things, I love color and texture.... I love beads, buttons, fibers, paper, journals, mixed media, paint, lace, mosaics, metal, wire, glass, bottle caps, broken things, rusty metal and the list goes on! It gives me such pleasure to create using bits of history. I hope to inspire you to create with randomness that might otherwise be tossed!
