Snug as a Bug

photos 746For a rug for the bedroom, I wanted something homey and cozy.  In other words, a rag rug.  I used scraps from the shirt I made the skirt with for this rug (See Shirt to ....).   It was surprisingly quick to make.  I have heard that miniatures can take just as long or even longer to make as compared to life sized items.  So when it took me just barely 30 minutes to finish, I was a little shocked.  I just ripped the fabric into long strips, braided them into two stranded braids, coiled and pinned them, then zig-zag stitch to finish.  Maybe I should have made more, I know several little girls who would love a few for their doll houses, and possibly a few older girls.
Here’s the updated list:
  • hangers
  • bed
  • mirror
  • dresser
  • skirt
  • pocket
  • lamp
  • night stand
  • wardrobe
  • rug
  • framed art
  • curtains
Ten down, two to go.  I am sure I will have the last two done before the end of the weekend.  That’s assuming something doesn’t go wrong with my glue gun.  Knock on wood.
