Book Release: Rugs for Kids

The novelty crochet designs in Rugs for Kids from Leisure Arts can help children step into imaginary worlds where creativity is key. Great for play areas and bedrooms, six fun designs include cow, owl, penguin, racetrack, rocket, and unicorn.

All are crocheted using medium weight yarn and Easy skill level. 

The cow is one of my favorites! It is based off of a lacier rug. I know many of you have one, don't deny it! Pretty, dainty...and now a cow! Approximate finished size of the cow is 28" (71 cm) diameter.

Have you ever made a motif owl rug? I loved designing this one, as I had to figure out how to make it proportionate and look like an owl! I love the flower motifs....can you tell? Approximate finished size for the owl, 32" wide x 39" high (81.5 cm x 99 cm).


Say Hello to Penguin! I love this lil guy...er, rug! It's fun and easy-- you need to make one! Finished size of the penguin, 36" (91 cm) wide (from Wing to Wing) x 36" (91 cm) high (from bottom of Feet to top edge); 

Vroom! Vroom! Making this rug was hard to keep a secret from my boys! Even after seeing it in the book they wanted it! What little boy wouldn't? It's made in 4 sections, sewn together and then you add the road pieces on top....it's so much fun! Let's play! Finished racetrack, 30" (76 cm) square.
Take off with this fun rocket rug! It's a 'blast' to crochet! Okay, I'll stop with the word games, but seriously----you have to make this one, too! Finished size: rocket, 22½" wide x 42" high (57 cm x 106.5 cm)
I was inspired by my daughter for this last unicorn rug. She loves horses so much--and when she was little, she believed in unicorns and anything magical and 'princess' themed! If you have a little dreamer in your life, you need to make her a unicorn rug right now! Unicorn measurements: 24" wide x 26" high (61 cm x 66 cm).
I enjoyed designing all of these rugs and you can find the complete collection in my book here. Keep your feet warm and floors cute with any and all of these rugs!
