1  Re: pom pom rug from craftivity in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by adarkprincess on: August 11, 2007 03:40:59 AM
Thanks for all the lovely comments.

Also, do you think it would be feasible to make a design in the rug? I totally want to make a penguin one xD

I definetely think it would be easy to make a design in one, and its a really good idea I would love to make the thundercats symbol, (runs off to find masses of red and black wool!)

It is really easy and quick to make. I used a fleece backing (which is not slippy at all on carpet, I would suggest to use one of those rubbery mats that are pt under rugs to stop them moving.

Instead of using a normal circle pom pom maker, you cut a rectangle out of card with two slots in it. Then you cut a length of wool and thread it through the slots. then you wrap the wool around the middle of the card to create the pom pom. You dont want it to actually end up a ball shape, its more or a really full tassle, so it is comfortable to walk on.

I would love to see any rugs that you make!!

This is a bag that I whipped up in two hours. It is made out of an old pair of jeans and some really cool patterned fabric. I didnt use a pattern, I just made it up as i went. I am thinking of adding some buttons as i love buttons, but am not sure!!!

This is my first ever completed sewing project and I half used a pattern and half made it up! The patterned material was a bed throw that I bought from a charity shop for 5! and the cord is from an old pair of trousers. I am going to wear it to my university interview tomorrow so wish me luck!
