DIY Fleece Area Rugs

 I looked for for the longest time for a rug that I liked for our living room, but never really found one that I loved.  So I decided to make one.  And while I love the way this one and the others turned out, it is not a project for those who like get things done quickly!  I didn't time myself on the big rugs, but the small pink one for my bathroom took 5 hours, so you can imagine how long the big ones took. 

I took strips of fleece and attached them to a latch hook thingy (don't know the official name for it!).  I would take the rug everywhere with me including the dirt track races and sit in a chair and put attach piece after piece.  They were all labors of love but I couldn't be happier with the way they turned out!  They are feel wonderful on your feet and add warmth to the room.


Here are some pictures of in process of making the small pink one.  The strips are 1" wide by 4" long.  I didn't tie them in knots, just slipped them through the grid.

Linking to these fun parties!
