Toothbrush Rugs - Complete Video Instructions (Part 1 - Beginners)

On this page you will find explicit step-by-step instructions that show you how to make a toothbrush rag rug! Yes, everything a beginner needs to know!

Toothbrush rugs are one of the easiest and quickest rag rugs to make. They are easy to learn, inexpensive to make, and the result is gorgeous!

Most other instructions that I've come across on the internet assume some previous knowledge of crochet or knitting. But, believe me, you don't need any experience to learn how to make these rugs! In fact, I just learned how to make these two weeks ago, and I am not very crafty at all.

 

 

 

I taught myself how to make these rugs in one day, and was SHOCKED at how easy it was. I figured it out in one evening, piecing together a number of different directions I found online.

I made two very small experimental pieces that looked awful, but soon enough my rug started to look good and I started a rug for real that very first night. The next day I worked on it ALL DAY LONG (8 or 10 hours?), and my first rug was complete! I was so satisfied and proud of myself!!

As a result, I vowed to share my knowledge. I don't like learning from diagrams, so I wanted to actually SHOW how to make the stitch. I just had to share my easy rendition.

Here is an example of what my instructions can help you to make. This is the first rug that I created (after a few false starts, of course).

START BY EXPERIMENTING

Material

To start experimenting, you will need two long strips (each approx. 2 feet long) of fabric, yarn, ribbon, or whatever you have on hand.

Tool

You will also need some kind of tool to help you pull the strip through--basically, you will need a "big needle". Many people use altered toothbrushes. The bristles/head are cut off and the severed end is filed to a point, like the pointy tip of a needle. The untouched end gets a hole drilled in it, like the eye of a needle.


Other people have used crochet hooks, or have purchased a tool from the "Aunt Philly" website.

When I was learning, I wanted to experiment right away, so my partner helped me bend part of a coat-hanger into a tool. Not perfect, but it works! Even if you don't have any kind of tool, I suggest experimenting anyway. How about a short, pointy pencil with your fabric taped to the end? The only reason you need a tool is to help you push your material through a tight hole.

 

 

Introduction

Let's watch the following movie. In it, we jump right into seeing the very basic knot that you need to know. Don't worry if you don't quite get it; this is just to give you an idea of what is to come.

Okay, now you've seen that the idea is pretty simple!

LET'S MAKE A RUG!

Making Lots of Fabric Strips

To make a whole rug, you will need lots of one-inch strips of material. Any material will do (try cotton or wool), but dry to avoid very stretchy material (like spandex, for example) because it's harder to work with. Basically, just use whatever you have on hand to begin with. To start a rug, I usually get around twenty strips "ready to go", which means that they are cut into one-inch strips (anywhere from 3 to 6 feet long), I've removed any annoying strands that are hanging off the strips, and I've cut small holes in the ends (discussed in the movie below).

 

 

Starting Your Rug

In this movie we start a circular rag rug properly, and we watch how to attach the strips together when your strip gets too short. (By the way, we start with circular rugs because they're the easiest. Ovals are pretty easy too, once you get the hang of the circle.)

3. So, here we go! Let's make a rug!!

My best advice is to just keep plugging away on whatever you've started. At first, it will probably look like a horrible jumble, but after you've gone around a couple times (for example, you've made like fifty to seventy knots [but don't count them or anything!]), you'll suddenly realize that you're starting to figure it out!

Once you feel like you've got the basic idea, it's time to start over with new material and actually start again with a perfect start.

PS: If you really want to make your rug look good, see the next tutorial (for intermediate ruggers)!

produk kosmetik terbaik

produk kosmetik terbaik Apakah Anda merasa seperti Anda benar-benar tidak punya waktu untuk berpikir tentang atau merencanakan makanan yang Anda makan setiap hari? Tidak ada waktuuntuk supermarket? https://facialwashterbaik.wordpress.com/2017/10/23/facial-wash-untuk-pri... ada waktu untuk mengurus tubuh, pikiran dan jiwa? Kemungkinannya adalah Anda sekarang berjalan pada kosong...

Saya baru saja mengambil bagian dalam program kesehatan di kantor perusahaanbesar dan bertemu dengan para karyawan; Kebanyakan dari mereka menderita stresdan efek gizi buruk. Mereka datang rumah terlambat dan tidak punya waktu atau energi untuk memasak, jadi bungkus adalah cara untuk pergi! De-menekankan makan bak es krim sebelum tidur atau pergi untuk minum dengan teman-teman. Setelahwaktu saya dengan mereka, saya mengumpulkan daftar singkat dari hal-hal yang orang-orang sibuk, kewalahan dapat memasukkan ke dalam hari mereka dengan mudah, hal-hal yang tidak memerlukan banyak perencanaan dan akan memiliki efek besar pada kesehatan mereka.

7 Tips cepat untuk tubuh yang sehat:

1. makan segelintir kecil baku biji dan kacang-kacangan atau setiap hari. Jika Anda akan membeli sesuatu dari supermarket untuk camilan, biarkan saja baku biji dan kacang-kacangan... Jangan pergi untuk keripik dan kue!

2. makan buah segar dua kali sehari. Beragam warna buah-buahan: berpikir merah,hijau dan oranye misalnya, dan bergantian antara anggur/Berry, apel/pir dan jeruk Mandarin.

3. banyak dari Anda makan di luar sebagian besar waktu, jadi penting bahwa Andamemesan kanan. Sebagai aturan praktis, selalu mengisi setengah piring Anda dengan sayuran, dan seperempat setiap protein dan karbohidrat yang baik. Pastikan Andamemilih sayuran dalam berbagai warna yang berbeda (hijau, merah, oranye, kuning...).

4. Pilih sumber protein, dan mencoba untuk memasukkan berminyak ikan seperti ikan salmon dan tuna dua kali seminggu. Menghindari daging merah sebanyak mungkin; menyimpannya untuk sekali seminggu (atau kurang!), dan memilih luka sangat ramping.

5. mengunyah makanan Anda, sampai halus dan hampir cair. Ini akan sangat membantu dengan pencernaan Anda, dan Anda akan makan lebih sedikit!

6. agama tentang asupan air! Ini adalah gizi yang paling penting Anda, jadi pastikanAnda mengkonsumsi 6-8 gelas air sehari. Memotong asupan kopi dan soda, dan menggantinya dengan sayuran, teh, dan jus. Pada makan siang bisnis, misalnya, Anda dapat memesan Virgin Bloody Mary bukan diet Coke dan teh daripada minum kopi.

7. Hindari makanan manis dan kaya/goreng, dan menjauhkan diri dari keranjang roti dan mentega di restoran... menyimpan kalori untuk riil makanan sehat!

7 Tips cepat untuk mengurangi stres:

Kesehatan adalah tentang banyak lebih dari hanya makan dengan baik! Anda juga perlu untuk mengurus hal-hal lain dalam hidup Anda yang memelihara Anda.

1. praktek mendalam sadar pernapasan sepanjang hari. Anda akan kagum pada segera menenangkan efeknya pada tubuh Anda. "Satu-nafas" meditasi adalah teknik relaksasi kuat, mudah yang dapat dipraktekkan Kapan saja, di mana saja dari kantor Anda ke kereta bawah tanah!

Cobalah setiap kali Anda merasa lelah atau keluar rusak: duduk di kursi yang nyaman, meluruskan Anda kembali, bersantai bahu Anda dan mengambil napas dalam-dalam. Biarkan udara terbuka dada Anda, dan membayangkan bahwa itu adalah revitalisasi setiap sel dalam tubuh Anda. Tahan napas Anda untuk jumlah 3, kemudian napas melepaskan setiap bit ketegangan. Ulangi 8 kali untuk pick-me-up cepat!

2. kita menjalani kehidupan yang sangat menetap hari ini, jadi penting untuk latihandan aktif seperti Anda bisa sepanjang hari Anda. Menambahkan gerakan di hari Anda dengan mengambil tangga daripada lift; bagi Anda yang bekerja pada lantai 35, ini tidak mungkin ide yang baik. Namun, Anda dapat mengambil lift ke lantai 30 dan kaki dari sana! Di kantor, berjalan lebih dari untuk melihat rekan-rekan Anda daripada menggunakan telepon... setiap langkah penting! Di luar pekerjaan bereksperimendengan gaya latihan yang bekerja untuk Anda: yoga, Pilates, seni bela diri, berjalan,berlari, Bersepeda, rollerblading, berenang, menari atau kompetitif olahraga... apa pun yang akan membuat Anda bergerak, dan itu menyenangkan! Tak ternilai sepotong nasihat yang bisa kuberikan tentang latihan adalah bahwa Anda perlu untuk menentukan apakah Anda adalah seorang pagi atau malam orang. Aku seorang pagi, jadi saya selalu latihan di pagi hari. Saya tahu bahwa jika aku meninggalkan itu untuk malam, energi saya akan terlalu rendah, dan aku tidak akan pernahmelakukannya!

3. mengambil 30 menit janji dengan diri sendiri setiap hari, dan manjakan diri Andadengan waktu tenang yang biasa. Mematikan telepon Anda, biarkan semua orang tahu bahwa Anda tidak ingin diganggu, mendengarkan musik, belajar, berdoa, bermeditasi... mengisi ulang sendiri... apa pun yang bekerja, sehingga Anda dapat bersantai!

4. menumbuhkan rasa syukur: hal pertama di pagi dan kanan sebelum tidur di malam hari, memikirkan 3 hal-hal yang Anda syukuri dalam hidup Anda.

5. menumbuhkan rasa humor; Hum atau menyanyikan lagu bahagia setiap hari dansenyum!

6. menjaga rumah Anda di urutan yang baik: Anda di rumah Anda!

7. akhirnya, melakukan yang terbaik untuk hubungan baik dengan orang-orang, terutama pacar atau pacar, suami atau istri, orangtua, anak, saudara, saudara, teman dan rekan kerja. Hubungan yang baik sangat penting untuk kesejahteraan kita!
