Lotus area rug-- A Stash Killer

Thanks to my dear husband, I got the inspiration. He started to worry about my stash, "What are you gonna do with all those fabrics, lay out all of them layer by layer, covering every inch of our house, a few dozen layers will do only if you don't buy any more." one day, he said when he found out my stash had invaded into not only the guest bedroom, but the mater bedroom as well.

Here comes my stash killing project, a fabric origami area rug. This round rug with only about 27" diameter used up about 11 to 12 yards of fabric. I didn't use any batting, since it's thick enough, some spots overlapped exactly a dozen layers just like my hubby suggested.

I'm going to put it here with the hand carved three-leg chair.

It looks like a lotus, at least to me. I like it very much, probably will make a green one later. But next I'll do some scrap cleaning projects.

This rug looks so vibrant and beautiful. It really brings life to a certain part of your home. We have a lot of rugs also in our home. And I always want it clean by having some carpet cleaners in Portland, Oregon and let them do the carpet cleaning. In Portland, there are a lot of great carpet cleaning shops that is affordable and has a lot of cleaning services.
