Here'sssssssssssss Johnny!

This is 'Johnny', Johnny Deere.  Hubby has never asked me to make him anything in his life.  But since brother-out-law got his International rag rug, hubby had to have his John Deere rag rug.  Johnny's made with thrifted t-shirts and sheets.  The emblem is from a thrifted wool blazer. 

Just look at this mess!  All that tearing of the fabric means tons of lint.  This is just an excuse-but have you seen all those rugs I've made?

Now excuse me please, I need to go clean this pig sty.

I hope you have a great Friday!

Love Johnny!!! I bet Larry was happy! Can't wait to see all of your rugs tonight!!

Wow, you got the colours just right for the John Deere. My husband has a John Deere tractor and I showed him your rug, he thinks you are very clever !
As for the mess, well you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs,
Good luck with the clean up.

I'm impressed with how your worked John Deere into that design. Nice going. I hope you got that room under control. You're a brave woman, posting that. I don't have the guts to show my disaster areas.
