One leather skirt = a 9 inch rug center

Skirt specs: Size 12, knee length.

This is the center of my "retina recovery rug." Next I'll do blue jeans, doing one pair at a time. I have a whole series of photos showing how I chose which jeans to go with this skirt, etc., to do as a tutorial for how the creative process works, but that will have to wait. Our female dog gave birth while sleeping on me last night, so... .

Hello, love your blog. I am toying with the idea of making a rug. I am a quilter and have lots of fabric everywhere. LOL.

Thanks Julie- yes, I've "inherited" a lot of mat'l from quilters over the years. :>

If you want to see what the leather center looks like with jeans, see the video in my most recent post.

Thank you, I'm on to my third pair of jeans now. I'll post a picture when my digital camera gets back from the repair shop. (Finally got a good camera, 2 months later, the screen went blank...)

Oh my! Hello dear friend. I have missed you terribly so. :(

I was so thrilled to see your comment on my blogger. :)

*on topic now*-
My great-granny Daniels used to make these rugs. She made HUGE ones, 10X8 or larger. I remember one that had a redish band in it quite like the color you're using here, and it was paired w/a brilliant blue color and mostly white. the red and blue sprinkled throught he rug at certain points.
I loved that rug, it was in her living room and i played on it as a child.

I think keeping up an old traditional craft is just fabulous!!
