Tutorial Rya rug / Long pile rug

Finally my rug tutorial is done =) First I doesn't post any thing or read any blogs for almost a whole month, and now I post once a week ;)
Before the vacation I got hooked in making rya/long pile rugs. First I had a pattern in my mind, but it was impossible to make it like I wanted, so I changed the pattern, and then change again, and I was quite pleased with the pattern even if it was completely different to the vision in my head =) I started thinking of a new pattern, and started another rug =) But still, the pattern was not what I planed.. But it was OK =) And then I gave it a third try, still not at all what I planned, but nice. So I'm very good at making rugs I first not planed on making ;)

I have already given you a sneak peak on this black and white rug. And now I wanted to show you how I did. I looked at a video on youtube, for real size rugs. And then I scaled down and tried and this is what I made =)



If you try this tutorial, please let me know, I'd love to see your rug =)

And if you like the music on this video you can hear more here: www.boray.se
And if you are a bit curious about me, you get to see at least one picture of my husband by clicking that link ;) Since "Boray" is my husband =)
Take care
Hannah

    1. Thank you Pirkko! It did take me a few tries to understand the technique, but once I understood it was quite easy, takes some time, but I always found needlework very calming and a great way to keep my hands busy, so I guess I'll be doing more of these =)
      Hope you try it out when you get the time, I'll be keeping my eyes open for it on your blog =)

    1. Thanks Jennifer! My husband is the best =)
      Hope you will try it too, time is always an issue, but I like keeping my hands busy, so I prefer doing some stitches while I'm relaxing in front of the TV =) And some days I just stitch now and then as soon as I sit down =)

    1. Thanks Jane! It took me a month or so to do the rug, but I didn't work on it every day =) And then I had great help from my husband to do the video =) It's not that hard to stitch this, when you understand the technique you just need a little time and then you have a rug =)
      And thank you, when I was younger I always thought I had too long and skinny fingers.. but now I'm happy the way I am, or at least I try to be .. =)

    1. Tack! Jag har köpt aida väven på loppis, och vet inget om storlekar på dem, men en ruta är 3mm bred, hoppas det hjälper =)

  13. What a great way to present your tutorial to us: the video in combination with the wonderful music makes that it looks so easy :D! But I think it will take quite some time to achieve this wonderful result!
    Can you pass on my compliments to your husband for his wonderful music? I've enjoyed hearing his music :D!
    Thank you for making and sharing this wonderful tutorial with us all, Hannah :D!
    Have a nice weekend. Hugs, Ilona

    1. Thank you Ilona! It does take some time to finish a rug, but I work faster and faster the more I sew =) I'm almost done with another one =)
      And thank you for the kind words about the music too, my husband is a great musician, he plays all instrument by himself, I have to say that I'm very proud of him =) (I know he took a look at the comments here yesterday, I'll ask him to check back again, to see your compliments too) =)
      Hope you have a nice weekend too!

  19. I don't think I would have the patience to do a large rug, but I might try it one day for a welcome mat, maybe a bathmat too. It's a great technique! Thanks for making the video :) And I love the monochrome rug in the video too! x

    1. Thanks Sarah! Welcome mat or bathmat sound great, I hope you'll try later =) I thought of doing a bathmat myself, but I'm thinking of a plastic bathmat too, I always have such hard time deciding, I might do both and try which I like the best =)
