1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money 17 May 2011
By Seven
I have just received the 'Crochet Shag Rag Rug Pattern collection' by Sarah Holmes and I am very dissapointed, the book is tiny, with very low quality images and very poor instructions (no mention of the size of crochet hooks to use and diagrams so small & fuzzy) in a very large typeface - so large it makes it difficult to read, this book is also quite expensive I wouldn't advise any more than 50p as the true value as compared to the £17 I just paid and from the US.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Pattern Collection. 30 Mar. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this for my mother because she's really into crochet and I thought that this would be a good addition for her to learn some new patterns skills and make some beautiful rags for herself and hopefully I can get some table placemats for my home too. She love's the book and she says that the book is laid out in a way thats easy to follow and she expects to produce some amazing patterns.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE THE IDEAS IN THIS BOOK! 31 Mar. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a massive fan of Kirsty Allsopp (and now a big fan of Sarah Holmes!) and I have been inspired to make rag rugs after seeing Kirsty's "Homemade Home" where she learned about this traditional craft. I downloaded this book and have been so pleased with what I've managed to make (including a basket which was surprisingly easy and my mum says it looks good!). You get lots of ideas with very specific instructions. I can highly recommend this to all. Off to make more rag rugs...

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas! 30 Mar. 2012
By Grandma - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase

Grandma loves to knit and crochet and really, really likes having her patterns right there on her iPad so there's no more having to print off the pattern. Sarah Holmes' Crochet Rag Rugs Household Pattern Collection (How to Make a Rag Rug) includes patterns for ten different household projects that include placemats, chair cushions, a three piece bathroom set, a Christmas tree skirt and three different baskets made by crocheting over rope. I saw one of those recently at a home furnishings store for more than $50!

The book does have a couple of formatting issues. The picture that Sarah includes inserts itself smack-dab in the middle of the quantity of rag strips necessary more than once, so you'll need to watch for that. An interactive Table of Contents that interfaced correctly with the Kindle Navigation Menu would be a really nice addition too.

You know, Grandma seems to remember an awful lot of sewing scraps in the quilting stash. One of those baskets would be really nice in her new apartment. You might find something marvelous here too.

Recommended - or maybe not.

UPDATE: A reader wrote to me a few minutes ago asking if I had noticed the price of more than $14 for this book. No, I did not. For some reason I thought this was in the typical $0.99-1.99 range one sees for this sort of kindled book. Grandma would be hard pressed to pay $14+ for ANY book that contained a mere 10 crochet patterns, never mind one as poorly formatted as this one. The pictures aren't even big enough to get an accurate picture of just how the various items look and there are no basic directions about cutting & joining strips at all.

Frankly, that made me take a second look at Crochet Rag Rugs. I visited the website Sarah links in the book, finding that it is located at Angelfire and is nothing more than a 1-page site offering this book and other similar products for sale. I also easily found far more detailed information about this kind of crochet than is presented here. Accordingly, I've substracted a star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Love These Patterns 26 Jan. 2012
By PV Thompson - Published on
After purchasing the Basic Rag Rug book and DVD I wanted more patterns I found these patterns were just what I was looking for. I Love the placemats, chair covers and bathroom set,the basket I made holds some of my materials. The possibilities are endless with these patterns, I use the placemats on my end tables, make the chair covers in different sizes to protect furniture from scratches from planters & other decorative items, making them smaller they can be used as hotpads. For anyone interested in recycling you can use old sheets clothing and material for these projects.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 15 Feb. 2014

The title is misleading it is not rag rugs it's baskets and placemats! I wanted a book to make the old fashion rag rugs my Grandmother made out of old clothes and fabrics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique and easy to follow patterns 31 Mar. 2012
By Helen Cotton - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This book contains simple easy to follow patterns for 10 unique designs. I bought this for inspiration as a friend and I are running a homemade crafts stall for the Jubilee at our daughter's school fate and we wanted to make some things a bit different to go alongside our normal bakes and smellies. So far we have each made the various baskets with great success and I think they will be very popular. Overall this book is a useful guide for anyone wanting to learn this craft or if you already know the art but want some different designs.
