A Cross-Stitch Rug


This pretty little pattern is from a bundle of vintage needlework clippings I won on eBay last year. There is no date, but the Chrysler advertisement on the back shows a distinctly early 20's hat.

The directions call for rug canvas and thick yarn, and a finished size of 28 x 45.5 inches. You could also try it on needlepoint canvas for a dollhouse. The diagram and color chart can be found on my Flickr account.

I love rug making and have made lots of different kinds but never thought about cross stitch.. that would be so pretty.
So much fun things and so little time :)
