The Demiun Rug, Finally the finished product

I did a post about how i was making a denim rug, like the one from Good Luck Charlie( click here to see) It seams to have sparked quite a bit of interest so i decided it was high time i deliver the final product.
This project took on a life of its own. Birdie suggested that i "decorate it", "draw some swirls", and "put one of those right there.' So i did my best to bring her vision to life. I used ribbon,  decorative thread, paint, markers and appliques to dress it up. It was actually a lot fun.
I sewed it together much like you would a quilt only i chose not to back it or use batting. It was quite thick and cumbersome when i was all done and although i had every intention of backing and binding i vetoed that when i remembered that eventually(probBLy with in days) it would need to be washed.
After placing it on her new vinyl tile floor i was not really happy with the feel of it, so I ordered a rug pad from Overstock. It has been working well and Birdie and her friends are thrilled with it.
