I made another rug.  The loom keeps calling me!  It is so much fun.
This rug is 54 " x  22 ".
I am going to have to start listing these in my ETSY store.

Fun with my loom

I pulled out my loom this afternoon and decided it was time to  make another rug.
I used some black fabric with tiny white and orange dots on it and some light orange yarn.
I got the fabric at our local thrift store for $2. I had 3 yards of 60" wide silky double knit fabric and decided it would make a nice rug.  I cut it into 2" strips.

The rug is 22" wide and 50" long.  This yarn and silky fabric made a really soft rug.
I need to weave again soon.   This took me about 5 hours to complete.  In the photos the yarn looks yellow but it is really a light orange.
