Opinion Needed..
Ok, I started this project with leftover Briggs...I'm planning on felting once it's completed...alittle puckering here & there but ok I guess...

Should it be a rug or a bag?

Let me know your feedback, obviously I'm going to have to make more squares for the width for it to be a rug..but a bag might be cool as well.

Thanks,
Rhy

I'm not a fan of knitted or felted bags. I've made them, but never seem to use them. LOL Sooo... that said, I think it would make an incredible rug. Really great. Heck... it makes me want to make some felted rugs! Please make a rug.. I wanna see!

I vote for a rug too! That's a really neat idea.

The square in the bottom left hand corner - is that Briggs yarn too? I've never seen verigated Briggs & Little yarn like that before.

OH! I'm actually doing something very similar at the moment. Mine is going to be a rug. I like the look of it.

Rug or Bag...
Hehe, well i guess I got my answer, a rug it is...my husband thought so too...lol, i'll show a pic once it's all done.

The yarn in the bottom corner is a combo of all the differnt yarns i used throughout, so yes it's all briggs just strips of yarn ....my Mum loves that one...just threw it in for something different...LOTS OF ENDS TO WEAVE IN THOUGH...has been fun...a thoughtless project..no pattern or counting, etc...lol

Rhy..

ps>>>thanks for all the great feedback, you guys are a great soundboard
