Need Help with Crochet Rag Rug
I've got instructions (don't remember from where) on how to cut the fabric on the bias for making a rag rug but it's not working the way it's explained. I must be missing something but can't figure out what it is.
The instructions say if I cut the fabric on the bias I will get longer strips. Do a diagonal cut but not to the edge then turn about 1/2" from the edge and cut to almost the other edge...it's possible to get a square of fabric cut into one long piece.
My first piece is long but all the others are shorter 'cause I have to cut them away from the fabric at the edge.
I've even tried to work it out with a piece of paper and scissors and I can't get it into one long strip.
What am I doing wrong? Can anyone help?
Thanks so much for your time and have a very nice weekend.
