Gathering and Recycling

Make a collection of old blankets, discarded jumpers, lovely faded colourful Tshirts.
Even a small rug uses quite a lot of fabric so make sure you have plenty of the colours in your design.
Charity shops are a good source of materials and you will find that friends will happily save cast off or moth damaged jumpers for you. Always wash the moth damaged pieces on a hot wash, this can ‘felt’ wool pieces which makes a nice solid rug.
