Voila! Off to the rug fabric pile I went, and here is the result. It measures almost 5' x 4'.
My friend Kathe supplied me with the base fabric. She spotted sale tablecloths while shopping one day and they were so thrifty, she could not resist buying me a few! I think thicker fabrics make the best base - they make the rug just a bit more sturdy.
Here is a peek of it in its new home:
I am working on a second rug for the girls now - I hope to have it ready by Thanksgiving. I'll share it with you soon.
Too bad the World Series is over - I got a lot done during those LONG games!
