Apartment Daisy - Rugs in her apartment

Daisy's apartment needed a couple of
rugs to sit on the floor.
I did not have anything and started
looking at a couple of old
'Petit Point' Pocketbooks that
I own. These purses have sat
around in my closet for eons.
They are still widely available
on the net so I figured tearing
up one of them would not hurt.

Well, I did it after much though!
Now Daisy has 2 lovely rugs
to put into her apartment.

The purse has a new lease on life - 
been repurposed as rugs!
I fringed some of the sides. These will 
no doubt be 2 of the best rugs the
building will ever have. Or the best
rugs that I will ever own!

Lovely isn't it! Daisy thinks so too!
In fact she thanked me!

I wanted to show you the back of the rug. There is
is some kind of a rubber type backing that has been
applied to the Petit Point. It will not come off, 
must have been put there from some kind of
manufacturing process.
The black stuff has been on so long that you can
almost see the pattern lines thru it.
Must be put there to make it easy to sew under the
sewing machine and also for strength so the
pocketbooks were not flimsy.

I like to think that it is a slip proof backing so
that Daisy never falls down because
her rugs never go flying out from
underneath her!
Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by
to visit me!
