    Here's the picture of the Toothbrush rug (36 "x 22") I finished last night. It is so easy and fast to do. Entire rug could be made in 1-2 evenings.
    It uses a tool that can be made out an old toothbrush with a hole in the top - thus the name.
    The pattern is from http://www.auntphillys.com/
    but there are several free sites available too:

    Here's the tool used.
    It's about 4" long - if you use a toothbrush you cut brush part off and shave cut to a point

    She will try any box on for size. Spends hours turning and scrunching, forcing body parts when they don't belong.
