Thanks for all the lovely comments.
Also, do you think it would be feasible to make a design in the rug? I totally want to make a penguin one xD
I definetely think it would be easy to make a design in one, and its a really good idea I would love to make the thundercats symbol, (runs off to find masses of red and black wool!)
It is really easy and quick to make. I used a fleece backing (which is not slippy at all on carpet, I would suggest to use one of those rubbery mats that are pt under rugs to stop them moving.
Instead of using a normal circle pom pom maker, you cut a rectangle out of card with two slots in it. Then you cut a length of wool and thread it through the slots. then you wrap the wool around the middle of the card to create the pom pom. You dont want it to actually end up a ball shape, its more or a really full tassle, so it is comfortable to walk on.
I would love to see any rugs that you make!!
