I was trying to describe the rugs I made for my daughters bedroom to a member.

I thought why not just go ahead and post them to share with others who may want an idea to use up scrap yarn.

I made Pom pons in several different sizes and several types of yarns. I used one of those foam, under rug pads. They are meant to be placed under a rug to keep the rug from sliding, but I thought it would make sense for the rug base. I simply tied the Pom pons to the rug backing. I laid them out to space out the colors and sizes and tied away!

These were made for my 15 year old daughters room, but I think one would make a great bath mat as well. I did use mainly cotton yarns with a few washable wools mixed in.

She says stepping into her rug feels LIKE HEAVEN on her bare feet. Hey, making a teen girl happy is NOT easy!

This is the underside of the rug. You can see the poms are just tied on. If one or a few get dirty, I can cut and replace with new poms.

I bet that is just wonderful to walk on. I imagine it would be sooooooo soft and squishy.

You are so clever! I love it, it looks so soft.

Your idea would also work well as a colorful footstool cover.

Great idea, looks lovely, too. I like the idea of being able to untie individual pompoms.
