About this kit:
Our Ragged Life Rag Rug Bouquet Kit comes with all the rag rug tools and instructions to make a beautiful, everlasting bouquet of seven fabric flowers. You can see the varied bouquets that students and the Ragged Life team have made in our Rag Rug Bouquet Blog Post before reading on.
Here's what is included:
- Rag Rug Spring Tool - this is the quickest and easiest tool to make shaggy and short shaggy rag rugs. Read more about why we love the Spring Tool and see it in action here.
- Rag Rug Gauge - this is a time- and effort-saving tool to make cutting up your fabric pieces for shaggy and short shaggy rag rugging that little bit easier. Our wooden gauge cuts fabric pieces to approximately 7.5cm (which is the perfect length for rugs, cushions, wreaths and more) and has a wide, deep groove to prevent your fabric scissors getting blunted.
- Hemmed Bouquet Hessian (to make 7 flowers) - no need to do anything with this hessian so you can get rag rugging straight away!
- Wooden Flower Stems (for 7 flowers).
- Marker Pen - for sketching any designs onto the hessian.
- Rag Rug Techniques Booklet - includes step-by-step instructions and photos of how to do the shaggy, short shaggy and loopy rag rug techniques using multiple tools, as well as advice on spacing, troubleshooting and more.
- Bouquet Booklet - with bouquet specific design tips, step-by-step instructions on how to assemble your bouquet once you've finished your rag rugging and more.
- Exclusive access to the Kit Companion page on the Ragged Life website - this login-protected area of the website includes videos introducing the equipment, advice on fabric usage, tips for creating strips for rag rugging, 'how to' videos, design tips for beginners, FAQs and much much more. It's a treasure trove of rag rug knowledge.
