I'm still working my way through the first volume of the craft encyclopedia! I bought a box of homespun plaid scraps on eBay for $2 to start making strips for a braided rag rug. I already feel like I've bitten off more than I can chew. Cutting the strips is incredibly tedious. I'm going to try using a rotary cutter for the next round. I only have a ball the size of my fist ready to go; this project is going to take forever. I've been googling different color combos and methods to ensure that I get a really nice FO. I don't want to dedicate this much time cutting to end up with a big mess.
Have any of you ever made a braided rug? Am I insane?
