 Our house is only carpeted in the bedrooms, otherwise its hardwood or tile. That's fine for us, but our dog on the other hand spins out on the slick floors all the time. Usually its just kind of amusing, but on occasion she slips and hurts herself. Never anything serious, but still, I don't want my little girl laid up so I've been making rugs. I made this one a few weeks ago https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=386277.msg4569034#msg4569034 and made this first one the same way:

This second one I totally winged. I had to trim around the edges of the bottom piece to make it match because the patch work somehow wanted to get wider as I went along. I'm looking forward to seeing how this looks after a few washings, I left the edges free so they would fray. :

And a shot of my inspiration enjoying the red rug  Grin:

I don't usually like denim patchwork, but I'm really a fan of that rug.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Wow, good job.  I would LOVE to have rugs in my place.  But my oldest dog (15yrs old) pees on them.  Sad

I am interested in personal swaps!

I like them both!  I also like that you left the pieces of the denim patchwork rug different sizes.

Any current pictures of the denim rug after a few washings?

I love nonsense - it wakes up the brain cells!
