I had a bag of scraps and dumped them out and started looking thru them, trying to find something that jumped out at me. My pennys are stapled and waiting for the rest of the rug to come together.
So far I like the colors and shapes. I'll grab the stapler and staple each piece to the background first. I can't wait to start the embellishing! How are your rugs coming along? Have you chosen traditional shapes or have you indulged into something fun and funky? I can't wait to see what you guys have come up with. I have some fun threads, buttons and beads and ribbons to add.
