I don't think I've been happier about a seeing a new item for the shop as I was when we started opening up these rugs and laying them out to view them.
Each one is just fabulous!
They're soft and lightweight with a mellowed look/feel. I just adore them!
And one of the things I think I'm most excited about is the fact that these "rugs" will TOTALLY lend themselves to.....
When we unpacked the first one, my daughter's first remark was something like "These would be great on a window as a fold-up shade!"
Yes m'dear, they WOULD!
All that you would need to do to convert one of them into a shade is flip it over and sew on plastic drapery shade rings at evenly spaced intervals on the back - making as many rows as you want. Then thread string or cord of some kind up through each row and across the top. Tie the strings off together and attach a cleat to your window frame for tying the shade up or down to it's desired height. Voila!
(If any of you decide to try this, just email me for better directions, or try searching on line for how to make a roman shade. Once you get the concept, you'll see you can turn just about anything into one!)
The cost is very reasonable whether as a rug or a window treatment, so you can't go wrong!
There are two designs and two sizes (both designs are available in both sizes).
Want one for yourself?
(Before I decide to re-do all my windows at home with them?)
Just thought you'd like to know....
