Podunk Pickin's #18

Every so often we need to actually make something with all those leftover string pieces of fabric.  Well I've got a great little project that whips together in no time.

It's super easy, super quick and the results are so darn cute.  A clothesline fabric wrapped rug with all your favorite prints. 

You can make it as big or small as you like.  My plan was to use up the 3 bundles of clothesline.  Not quite there...

Finally! The end of the rope at about 25 inches.

Oh this is just too darn cute to be on the floor.  The little bowl you see below was made from a nylon rope purchased in the hardware section of the Everything's a Dollar store.  Around here it's called the Dollar Tree.  I'm sure there's something similar to it in your neck of the woods.

If you'd like to make one of these super cutie rugs you can find a great tutorial over at Vintage Ricrac

Now its your turn to show off what you've been stitching up this week.  The rules are simple....Anything sewing or quilting related.  If you don't have a blog that's okay, Inlinkz allows you to link up from other social media sites.  Don't forget to visit and comment a few other links, everybody loves visitors!
