Crafting is a state of mind.

So...backstory to this rug is, I have a lot of fabric scraps.  By a lot, I literally mean a garbage can full.  Most of my fabric comes from estate sales where no one sorts out the leftover scraps from the nice big pieces of fabric.  But being me, I know there's uses for them and can't just throw them away.  But the more I sew, the garbage can gets more and more overflowing, so this was a start to try out locker hooking and get rid of scraps at the same time.  I really like how it turned out!



It's kind of hard to tell, but there's all sorts of textures in there too- denim, velour, fleece, you name it.  Also, because it was scraps, nothing was cut on the bias, so it's kind of fray-ey in places, but I personally think it goes with the scrappy look.
