I got this idea from a post on Craftblog at the beginning of March.  They featured a rug made with felted "stones". 



I started making balls out of my stash of leftover wool.  (You know that stash of wool you can't bear to part with but don't have enough to actually knit/crochet a whole project?).  I used a combination of hand and machine felting, and sewed the stones together by hand with a nylon twine. 



It's sturdy, cushy and feels so good under my feet.  Pity it's a gift for my friend...  I may just have to make another.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.
