So, I wanted to start with a basic plainweave rug. I chose some cute peach patterned fabric rags, read up on the process in my instructional book, and set in. I was amazed at how fast the process went, which shouldn't have surprised me since the rag is rather large in the shed. It was simple, mindless, and rewarding.
Here is the finished product in my front foyer. On a 2 1/2 yard warp. it ended out being 53.5", excluding a 4" fringe at both ends. I was not sure what to expect from the selvedges, as I did not use a temple, but they seem nice and even without pull-in. The header looks nice, too!
