I decided that I wanted to help keep my boyfriends house neater, it was kind of a resolution for the two of us. So he asked for a door mat to keep dirt out.  Well, he didn't just want any doormat he wanted it with the hood emblem of his favorite car sitting in his garage.
A Toyota Celica Supra 1985

and here is the emblem

and then here is the doormat. Sadly i never thought about taking a pic of it in progress...  I designed the pattern myself i drew it out on graphing paper and then  I colored it and tapestry crocheted it.

and after it was finished crocheted, i washed it and sewed shelf liner on it so it wouldn't slide.
The dog loves the door mat sooo much that he lays on it rather than on his bed

What a cool idea! My husband would love a Mustang one.

I'm impressed at the design! Funny that the dog likes it so much. I guess he needs one, too, now!

I thought I was the only person in the world whose boyfriend loved Supras.  Personally, I think they are weird-looking with awkward, displeasing angles, but according to gearheads like these boys - they are fast and amazing.  So... what I am trying to say is... awesome!  Your boyfriend had better appreciate you - and the mat Smiley

What yarn did you use to crochet?
Maybe DH would like a volvo one!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
