Crochet Rug and Purse

Sometimes it is just fun to have a funky rug in your studio. 
I crocheted this from strips of leftover fabric.

Each strip of fabric is cut 2 inches wide and as long as the width of the fabric.  It is a simple single crochet stitch with each row adding additional stitches to create a bigger and bigger round rug.  The edges are 8 inch strips of fabric looped onto each stitch on the edge of the rug.  It is quite heavy and probably has 8-10 yards of fabric in the final product.

Shari loved my rug so much she wanted to make a purse.  This is her second one since the first one was sold right off her back.

Great job Shari!!!

My friend Shari looks quite smashing with her new purse.  Do you just love my hydrangeas?

Saw rung in person and loved it. Shari did a great job on her purse --- such good creative energy there in High Springs.
