I’m a big supporter of our local library. I love books. I must read before I go to bed. If I don’t, I’m guaranteed insomnia. I’ll read cookbooks or maps, if necessary. I must read. So, I was intrigued when our local library had on their “new” shelf “The Feisty Stitcher” by Susan Wasinger, published by Lark Books (great craft website). The cover was eye-catching and it seemed the projects would feed my self-imposed ADD, as well as my need for speed. Anyway, I’ve now had the book checked out for about two months (benefits of having several cards). Eventually, darn it, the library is going to want the book back…. What this tells me is that I need to buy this book. I have even loaned it to a couple of friends to get their reaction. It’s a cool book and the projects are all über easy and fascinating.
So besides mowing in 400°, this was my project today. This Feisty Stitcher denim rug was begging to be made by me. Begging, I tell you. I’ll admit that it took a tad longer than the couple of hours stated, but I think it was well worth it, even though my Elna was smoking hot when I turned it off. It’s a smashing rug, baby! The funny thing is, I hate wearing denim, but I really like denim otherwise. I think I’ll put this rug in my laundry room. I mean, denim goes with everything, right?
Do your crafty self a favor and go buy this book, okay?
Please, please do not cut through the fifth (bottom) layer (painfully hard to fix).
When the cycle is complete, toss in dryer and it will start fluffing and fraying on its own.
An amazingly easy denim rug–cute, no?
