Swaledale rug

Some months ago my daughter drew a pattern for me, I took one look and thought it would be great made as a rug. It’s taken me a long time to get around to it but at last I can show it to you.

I laid down eight layers of swaledale wool fibres and topped it with blue rug wool and lines of merino. In addition to rolling and stamping I also used the felting roller to help me get the edges nice and firm. Obviously this will now be snaffled by my daughter for her room.

If you’d like to make your own felt rug why not sign up for my workshop on Sat/Sun 26/27 June. Two days tuition, all your fibres, as much tea and coffee as you can drink, plus homemade cake all for just £95.
