I'm still working on the tapestry rug. It's not perfect. I'm not to experienced in it but thought this would be a good chance to learn some tricks.
I did figure out how to make my own bobbins. At $20 a pop, I thought it would be worth it to make my own. I came up with this with dowels and beads. I love em. It only takes me five minutes to make one. I'm not so good at making the non-slip loop though.
