DIY: Faux Bear Skin Rug


{ka-boom}

Since the main floor of our house is all hardwood, we've had to dive full on into the world of fuzzy socks with those grippy dots on the bottom, house slippers, and rugs.


The Bean's room {toes} especially needed some warmth.
It's a vast sea of cold for someone who wants to, but can't, wear footed pajamas 24-7.  
Originally, I made a few of those knock-off Ikea sheepskin rugs to throw in there.
But those are white. 
And the Bean is the Bean.
I might as well hand him one to use as toilet paper, cause life around here is nowhere near a clean, white, Ikea magazine. 

Hence, the deepdarkdarkinexpensivelyaestheticallypleasingblack bear skin rug! 

My feet kind of want one too. 

...


{Details} 

< Three yards of fabric will make two good sized rugs. {I bought mine at JoAnn's with a 50% off coupon}
< Seal the edges with a hot glue gun, or fabric glue to prevent future shedding. {Dritz Fray Check}
< Feeling super domestic? Line the back with a non-slip grip pad.

Baby Bean's room is coming together so nicely. You're so such a great mommy to put this together for him. BTW I hope I look half as gorgeous as you after having a child. Seriously.

P.S. How is the packing going for Fashion Week?
