Forever ago, it seems, I started cutting fabric, then sewing it together, making a big ball, and braiding. Really I think it has only been 6 months, but that is a long time to be dealing with this big mass of fabric on my desk.
Last night I finished. The last bit was connected, and I am DONE!!!
I followed the directions in Handmade Home. The directions though were not quite clear when it came to lacing it together. I basically had a basket halfway through, and had to rip it out and start again. The needle I used also had instructions that were not so great. I found that in order to have a flat rug I had to lace each braid. Next time, I am going to not use certain fabrics, and make sure I am more conscientious when cutting them the same size. But for now, I am done with rugs for awhile, this one will do for little l's room, and I can try to finish something else!!
