The woman we bought my loom from was an amazing individual. She showed me some of the rugs she wove on it. They were so beautiful I decided I had to attempt it myself. My first real rug (I made a square that I do not count) was made of fabric that I cut into strips and wove accordingly. It's 23"x50" So it's longer by a tiny bit than the standard rag rug. So, here are some picture of the weaving process, and then some of the finished piece. One, with my Luna sitting in the middle looking lovely. The camera did wash the colors out, quite a bit in fact, but there it is.
The flash was on so you can't make out texture, but it's there, and I'll post a better picture when the bobbin is full. Yesterday was the most productive day I've had in ages.
