I've been told to make some blankets for my two nieces and one nephew because they have stolen the rug i made for my sister's birthday - she wants hers back lol.
Ive made two of three so far. Its a good way to get rid of stored up wool - kids love lots of colours.

I have finished the last rug and thought id just add it to this post, saves making another one. This rug is for the boy of the group, hope he likes it!

These two images are of the next two rugs I intend on making, enjoy Smiley

I love the rainbow colours and I can't blame the kids for wanting one.  I can't quite make out how you did the edges.  Are they fringed?  Lovely piece of work.

Thank-you guys!!  Grin

The edges are feather wool. You can get the ones i have used and thinner ones called ostrich wool  Cheesy
You can see the ostrich wool better in this post i made

They look like works of art! Love the textural quality.
