    Well I've had my last rubberbacked rug go to to pieces in the wash machine.
    I ordered a breast cancer pink tool/needle and Philly's DVD.

    My cousin up by Seattle has taught these classes for years, adult ed classes through the local college,
    she picks up flat sheets at thrift stores and garage sales, four to a student. They are really beautiful. The ones she does for herself she uses homespun so the design is equal on both sides.

    I've got miles of inherited Jenny Beyer border stripe fabric, in blue, green, and orange. Totally totally ugly, just to look at it is depressing. Cut into strips and wadded I'll bet it will be lovely. I'll only cut a few strips to check though!

    I've made them. It really does take 10 or more yards of fabric. Great way to use up ugly fabric. My kids pets loved them our dog loves the first one I made, really small just her size. Fun to do.

    Great idea. Doubt I will make any.
    I use large yardage of ugly fabrics for quilt backs.
