I first saw this type of rug in a design magazine, it was called Hay Pinocchio Rug. It was gorgeous the felt balls were made from brightly coloured wool that made them look like gum balls. I had to have it, but the price tag was ~$1000 Cdn. I've made a few felt balls before so I figured I can make this type of rug myself. Although the process of making this rug was fairly easy, it took a lot of time; first felting the balls then sewing them together. When I check the date of the first process pictures I took, I had started in May 2011, so it took me almost a year to put this together.
I decided against using the bright colours that the Pinocchio Rug had because frankly it wouldn't really match the decor in my apartment. I used mostly shades of brown and white.
