Cactus Creek Style Folk Art Rug
I like folk art, I like the rustic feel of braided rugs, and I used to make these out of old teeshirts when I was a kid. We are getting rid of a lot of old clothes, so I think this is the perfect project. I also think it's really wonderful to take clothing that we have worn, some of it for years, and weave it together into an heirloom (just in case I ever have those kiddos to pass it on to) or at least something really neat to have in our home.
Here's to making something new out of something old. I'll take photos when I am done!
Have a great night. I hope I can talk Dougie into walking to the coffee shop with me to get a cupcake. I have a sweet tooth tonight.
***EDIT*** Since, while I am making this rug, Ollie has fallen in love with it, I think I'm going to make him a dog bed instead. He won't stop laying on the small center I have sewn together. SO CUTE!
