Way back when I was going through my charm pack phase, I put together this little wall hanging. It hung in the same spot until we moved, but by then, I had a new plan for it. A friend had passed on a copy of Mary Janes Farm Magazine and in it were instructions for making homespun canvas floorcloths, perfect for my charm pack wall hanging thingy. Now I have a new rug by the front door.
The nice thing about this rug is that it’s flat, so it doesn’t get in the way of the door opening. It’s also sweepable and doesn’t hold dust, so doesn’t need to be vacuumed.
My ingredients? 2.5 bottles of Mod Podge to glue my 3 layers of fabric together and a fantastic new find: rug backing. Rug backing is painted on to the bottom to keep the floorcloth from sliding around. I can see all kinds of uses for this.
