Found - Mega Doily Rug

This is one of those posts where I feature something so cool that I presume I must be the last person to know about it. Amazing Mega Doily Rug from Ladies and Gentlemen. There is something so intriguing about miniature things and over sized things. I wonder if she actually uses a huge crochet hook? Fabulous!

I love this rug. Doesn't it just make you want to go out and buy a tonne of rope and see what you can make out of it? It also makes me want to *finally* finish that jute knitted doily rug I've been working on for over a year now.

Oo that looks so nice, I love it! I just wonder though whether it is nice and soft or hard? Actually I don't care...it looks fab!

I really want to try making one like this myself since I don't have $600 to shell out on one.

Wow this was a popular post. I guess we are all drawn to things that seem 'giant' or oversized. Makes us feel like we are living in Lilliput!
Thanks for all your comments!

Hi Fiona,

Thanks:)

hello all!
Contrary to popular belief I did not make this rug! The link to the original maker has been on this post since the day I wrote it :-)
The maker is Ladies and Gentleman Vintage Shop and here's the link, http://www.etsy.com/listing/60864322/4ft-handmade-mega-doily-rug

Does anyone know where you can buy the 1" cotton rope for this? I've seen several things made out of it and I just love the look, but haven't been able to find any place that sells it. All I can find is the twisted rope.

This rug is AMAZING! It looks like macrame (which would be totally awesome because then you don't have to find an arm sized hook)... I need to learn macrame.

Lauren said...

Good morning, my name is Tonya (www.tonyastaab.com) and a reader alerted me this morning to some of my work being stolen and used on what appears to be a spam site, I thought I noticed that they have also blatantly copied and pasted this post as well, but thought you may also want to make sure that none of your other posts have been stolen too: http://interests11.blogspot.com/2012/03/mega-doily-rug-tutorial.html

This is SO cool! I just started to crochet and while I am still working out some kinks, it's amazing to see what beautiful things you can create when crocheting.

I made this rug already. You can find a step by step instruction in this book: "Crafting a Meaningful Home: 27 DIY Projects to Tell Stories, Hold Memories, and Celebrate Family Heritage"
Meg Mateo IIasco"
Used Cotton Piping Cord. The book specifies what type to look for. I had to buy two boxes of the cords, and then sowed them together. Looked so good at the end!
