And can you spot the dog?:)

      Thank you:) I myself made the rug in my craftschool by using traditional weaving machine, which you usually don’t have at home. I still assume that there are some techniques to make a rug without a machine too.

      thanks!:) I made my carpet using a non-electronic weaving machine, but i’m quite sure you can find some instructions on the internet on how to make a carpet without a machine. I’m sorry that I don’t know any specific sites, but I guess you’ll do fine googling:)
