Ever wonder what to do with those scraps of material  you just can't throw away.... here you go.. I have plans to make one for my dd but coming up with different  colors is a problem getting ahold of but it is on my to do list.. so I thought i would share with you all. I hoped i did this right... so let me know if not...

I thought someone out there would enjoy it.. it is from a old seventies book on rug making.. sadly the book lost to old age & fell apart so i saved a few patterns & thought i would share this pattern due to easiness & recyclable of materail...cause i know we all have something that we just can't get rid of & why not make a rug.. my dd has this on her wish list & patiently waiting for one but getting ahol of different colored scraps has benn hard to get ahold of as practically no one sews anymore around here...

I tried to make something like that. It's very difficult, I never did more than a few meters.

In an old crafts book of me from the seventies something similar is mentioned, but made of old tights Undecided

Cool, but the intructions are a little vague.... I don't understand how you do the backing. or maybe it's just my inexperience.

all it is bringing the material through a hole or just through a piece of materail  & then tying it off on top.. or maybe better yet use the stuff to make those latch hook rugs..

i helped a friend make a rug similar to this about ten years ago using hook rug fabirc and old tshirts. came out nicely, and very pleasing to the bare feet.
  on a side note.. that doll is wonderously creepy.. i'm both terrified and enthralled- especially by the feet. i simultaneously grinned and shuddered when i saw her, lol.
