I might have made a mistake...

You know that feeling of inspiration? When a project idea comes to you, and you're in love with it already? You may not know how it's all going to come together, but you had a vision, and you're sold!
Or not.

For a long while, I was collecting scraps of vintage doubleknit fabric. I liked the individual pieces somewhat, and I pictured them melding into an extremely hip creation. Instead, I got this:
Which looks like the 70s threw up on my kitchen floor. I tried to like it, but the only emotion it grabs is sympathy for my lost time and energy. Now I have a scrap rug that will never wear off its ugliness. It's currently in the garage, but if someone wants to make an offer.....

I kind of feel sorry for the poor rug. It has potential...not saying I want it or anything though. :)

I think the rug looks good. Sometimes, if you have a clear vision in your mind at the start and it ends up being something different to that, you can miss seeing the good stuff :)

it's probably not what you planned but, I think it's cute. What site are you planning on selling it on?
Guess it's that whole eyes of the beholder thing.

Joyce, it's a good thing my mom isn't online, because she would L-O-V-E that rug and get it from you lickety split. Not that that would be that bad of a thing, er...sorry. Good sewing though!

I think you should sell it on ETSY.com. It would look adorable with matching decor. It is cute, you are too hard on yourself.

If that's washable, it would make a fab tent doormat/ rug...

I rarely like mixed colors for anything, but I actually like your rug. It would even go with my blue and white curtains in the kitchen or in the bathroom with the blue shower curtain.
