A long time between posts - Crochet Doily Rug Finish

Phew, my last post was in January, and let me say I've been flat out since. I started back at work after my super long 7 week break over Christmas, I've been preparing ( and partying) in the lead up to my friends wedding and I'm in the process of moving house. Excitement (and fatigue) is prominent in the Seraphym Household at the moment.

Of course, being a craft nut (addict), and a Art/Textiles teacher, I've still been crafting like crazy just not blogging about it. So fair to say I'm hoping to get a few posts on schedule today before the wedding and move happens so you can get your Seraphym Fix.

So if you've been reading along I've mentioned some projects that I'm keen to tackle....


So far, I've completed and blogged about the dog bed and one of the Kitty Arigarumi's, and I've bought all of the materials for the fleece hoodie dress (aka: on the UFO list)

And now I present to you my new finish.... The Crochet Doily Rug!



Sprocket just had to be in the picture!


I love me a good doily, and it was my intention to create rugs from the t-shirt yarn that I bought for 50 cents a ball. As you can see from the image above my original intention was to create a plainer version of the rug but as soon as my eyes set on the inspiration images below I was intent on creating a giant doily! Clicky on the images which link to Pinterest.

I had originally started using this tutorial, but as the tutorial would have given me a smaller rug than I had intended I just improvised the rest. I'm still keen to create a plain stitch rug and use it as a bath mat, since it soooo comfy under foot, but I'm not sure how it will go with water, and washing, since I have already noticed some balling of the fabric yarn.

Speak soon!
