I used the wrapped cord bowl tute from sew mama sew to make this rug for my daughter's room!
The first time I tried the tute, I would up with a large hotpad for my kitchen instead of a bowl  Embarrassed
We're re-doing my daughters room in pink and black so I decided to make her a matching rug. It's about 3.5' x 1.5'. I had all of the fabric already in my stash. There is one pair of pajama bottoms in there though.
I really wish now I had more of her outgrown pj's to make an entire rug using only those.

I LOVE it!  Great color choices, great work.  Makes me more determined to get back to my toothbrush rug, so thanks for the kick in the butt!

oh wow!!  I've been wanted to try the wrapped cord bowls but was also thinking about making a runner for the front door.  How was it working on a wrap-corded-thing that big?

The only problems I had came when the rug started getting big. It was harder to machine sew it the bigger and heavier it got. It developed a mind of it's own.
The cord wrapping took forever, but the sewing went so quickly!
