A ruler
Fabric: Cotton is best, check out local op shops for damaged sheets, use up some of your old remnants or head to Reverse Garbage. Fabric will also be available on the day for a gold coin donation.
A rag rug tool: You can purchase rag rug tools online however if you'd like to try out rag rugging before investing it's super easy to make your own rag rug tool. You can use a hair clip, a large paper clip, or bring a piece of thick wire and some tape and we'll make one. We will also have wire and tape to make your own on the day.
