The Rug Ta-Da!
Ta-da!!! Thanks to you guys with your help on my flower dilemma, the rug is finished and I love it!
I decided to go with the majority vote for the flower in the center because I think I'm going to try to sell it at my local craft fair this summer! If it was going to be for me I probably would have opted to go without it, since I tend to gravitate towards a more minimal color blocked look. Although, after having the flower on and off the rug so much in trying to decide, the rug started to look like it was missing something when the flower wasn't on there!
Sewing the flower on was a little time consuming. I wanted to make sure it was sewn nice and tight, but I also had to work on it laid out flat on the floor. Good thing the rug was nice and comfy to sit/lay on because it was quite awkward to sew!
What's the final size you say? 62 inches! Just over 5 feet!
I really like the texture that was created by crocheting in the back loops and turning the rug over after each round.
Here are some shots with a rocking chair for better size reference.
Is it weird I picture this rug in a bright modern nursery, (with wood flooring, white walls, and fun art for some pops of color, to be even more specific)? It's pretty soft which would be great for a baby to lay/crawl/play on!
Anyways, I'm really pleased with it!! I was a little bummed I ran out of the nylon before I could complete the pattern and turn the star into a circle, but I think the star shape makes it really fun! And I must say, this rug has given me a bit of an itch to do some more...
(If you're just tuning in, the pattern/hook details for the rug can be found in THIS post!)
I hope everyone's week is going well!
