DIY: Faux Sheepskin Throw/Rug

i was got so excited when i saw this post on young house love a few days ago. it's one of those times where you see a DIY project and you say to yourself, "why didn't i think of that?" i love having faux fur around i.e. pillows, etc., especially in winter, but i think these would be small and light enough for year round use.

1 trace out a pattern onto taped-together computer paper (or large craft paper if you've got it)
2 cut it out and trace it onto the backside of some faux fur fabric (found at any fabric store) + snip it up!
3 toss it in the dryer on a low heat setting for a few minutes to get rid of any loose fibers
4 throw it over whatever!

due to the thin quality of such a material, i think these would be better suited for use as a throw, but you could add some nice thick backing to it to make it a more sturdy rug. i think i'll make one of these for my egg chair!
