I am so mad at myself! I forgot to bring the rug I finally finished!
Way back when I blogged about getting this pattern and a bunch of us girls
got together to make shaggy pillows. I wanted to try the rug. Well, there's a big
difference between doing a 12" square pillow top and a 24" x 36" rug. About five hours
more! I started it and then put it on the back burner until I was ready to go home and
the rug was for my daughter's bathroom up north.
So I spent the good part of a day sewing down the strips, 1/2" apart. Finally I was done
and put it in the washer and dryer to become 'Shaggy'.
Here it is after the first was and dry. I have no idea why it seemed to change colors
in the photo because it was the same olivey color and not this teal color.
Here's a closeup of the shag starting. I washed it and dried it again but this time
I forgot it in the dryer. That's where it will be until my return. Oh well!
