This was actually my first completed sewing project this summer. One of the joys of a sewer learning to knit (thank you, Kay!) is that suddenly sewing seems to become instant gratification. One of my crafty friends (a quilter!) from work sent me the link to this site, to show how she made a bath mat for her girls' bathroom. Here is my take on Sew Liberated's tutorial:
I have some kinks to work out with my techniques, but I hope to be able to do that when I make a bigger, matching rug for our bathroom. That said, I have two other very different rugs in the making. I have no clue where my current fascination with rugs came from, but I'm having fun.
