Rag Rug - Two Colors Done

I have started crocheting a room size rag rug. I've got 2 colors done so far. I started with chain stitching 40, single crocheting the sides, and adding some extra single crochets around the corners. I go through a ball of "fabric yarn" pretty quickly. I have a whole bunch more ready to crochet in - over 15 more colors to go! See my previous post, Getting Started, to see a link for how to make your own fabric yarn. Check back in a few weeks for another progress update!
I haven't measured it with a yardstick yet, but I would estimate it to be 2.5 feet long so far.

Your work is SPECTACULAR! My very first published design was for a rag rug in the 1980's in Crafts Magazine! I do not think it was THIS WELL DONE!

This one is actually a custom order for another FAM Team member, Jenny of JGEdgeWear. She saw my baskets and asked if I could and would make her a rag rug for her daughter's room. I had never made one before, but made a mini one to try it out. Now I am working on this one! I may make smaller ones for my shop - we'll see. I would leave room size rugs as custom orders though!

That is quite a project! Looking forward to seeing it when it's all finished.
