Betsy's Rag Rugs

Betsy is off to Music Camp in Mendocino this week.  She has been very busy weaving rag rugs to take with her, hoping for a few side sales from people attending the music camp.  Betsy uses a rosepath threading and treadling in her rugs and I believe they are all woven on four shafts.  These rugs just eat up the cloth strips that Betsy cuts.  A great recycling idea for old clothing or sheets, but I think that Betsy may have used yardage for these rugs.
The rosepath pattern shows up clearly on this brilliant rug. A nice choice to dress up the music camp cabin or a bright spot to welcome guests to your tent.
