So this is the completion of stage three in the process of making a rag rug for our little home. The fabric has a nice sharp look to it without all the fray. I did so much ironing that I developed naturally quicker and more efficient ways of folding the fabric in 1/4 from the edges of the fabric with one hand while ironing with the other simultaneously. I actually felt ironing was a very peaceful and cathartic activity and spent hours doing this, but did suffer stiff neck like you wouldn't believe. Now we only need to begin braiding and sew the rug together which I imagine will take a day or so.
