Too funny, and too, TOO COOL! "Non-instant-gratification" indeed. And who knows? By the time you have grandkids, this rug may be all the rage and they'll all be fighting over it. And then you'll have to make more so they can all have one!  Wink

ROCKing this!

wow! you did a great job!

As winter is setting in i am weighing up the pros and cons about making my own rug from my front room or biting the bullet scriming and starving  ;Dand buying one..... but i think you might have swayed me Grin

I totally think it's worth making your own rug... so much so that I've been considering making one for my mom as a belated wedding gift. It's just time consuming. Very time consuming... though if you do it 2hours a night while watching tv that's 10 hours a week (we'll say) and you could finish in 2 months.
Plus, doing it over the winter it won't be so hard to do, because it won't set you on fire to work on it. I think my rug weighs around 20lbs sooo... in July when it was at 18lbs and I was working on it, I thought I was going crazy with the worlds heaviest blanket on my lap. Cheesy

This is awesome! Yes, if you ever put up a tutorial, I would be so excited to make one of these. I desperately need a rug in my bedroom and living room Smiley

I keep wanting to make a rug like this! I must know before I start one though... How is it to vaccuum?
« Reply #17 on: October 11, 2010 09:37:23 AM »

I haven't even tried to vacuum it for fear I'll ruin all that work, so I just shake it out outside, or inside when I'm lazy, and it's all clean, and then I vacuum up the mess. I think if you use the hose attachment, or turn the roller thing off it would vacuum just fine though (but the vacuum in our dorm does not work like that, so I haven't tried).

Would really like a tute for this. Looks like at least at the begnning it would be a great craft to work on in my crafting groups.

I'd really like the tutorial as well! I loved the rug! Cheesy
