Sometimes it is difficult for me to find creative inspiration in a sea of dirty dishes, laundry, and diapers. Luckily, I spied this quick and fairly simple Woven Circle Mat DIY over at the A Beautiful Mess blog. I love how blogger, Rachel Denbow’s turned out, but I was pretty happy with my little creation, although I went with a much-smaller circle. Check out Rachel’s own blog, Smile and Wave, for other weaving projects. She’s one talented lady. It took me a few hours (and a few glasses of wine) and my only cost was the yarn I purchased. Luckily, I already had a large tapestry needle, which really helps to pull the thinner yarn through the weave. Right now its just decoration, but perhaps I could also use it as a tea-cozy?
