I finally got that rug done. There was an idea from one of the members of the Denver Sewing Collective to make rugs. I don’t think this is what she had in mind but this is what mine turned out to look like.
I cannot remember where I saw this idea. It was a sewing book but I can’t remember the title. She put two towels together and made some patchwork, crazy quilt with sheet remnants on the back. I liked the idea because so many bathroom rugs aren’t really washer friendly. Washing two towels should work well. I got these towels and sheets at a thrift store. I love yellow, so cheery and sweet. Plus, gotta love the ‘Mama’.
When I went back to school shopping I was quite dismayed at what was in the stores. When in the hell did Lumberjack-meets-east L.A. car mechanic-meets-goth-boy come into style? Ick. Where is the cute little boy clothes. The clothes where they look like boys and not Andrew Dice Clay or gangsta. Sometimes I feel so out of touch.
