Kitchen Rugs

Here are the rugs I hinted about.  I really love them.  The instructions can be found in the book Patchwork Style by Suzuko Koseki.  (The same book I used to make these two little purses.) Made entirely of patchwork from my stash.  I am really mindful of trying to use what I have lately.  Again thinking of the words,

Use it up, wear it out, make do, or go without.

Now I will admit to not “going without” sometimes.  But with some things, I’ve been trying hard to not spend too much, or to make it myself if I can.  I’ve been making a good effort to use my fabric and yarn stash and it feels good to not head to the craft store every time I start a project.

And I have to say that I really, really love these rugs.

Here’s to “using it up.”

    I soooo want to make one of those, but our kitchen is about 6 feet by 6 feet, and I have no idea (1) where I would put the rug and (b) WHAT I would use it for. Maybe I’ll figure out an excuse to make one soon though….
