Repairing a braided kitchen rug

Golden Retriever; braided rug; sewing

We have had a braided rug in our kitchen (in front of our counter that we do most of the standing) for a long time.  Well, it has been starting to fall apart (the clear thread has been breaking, etc) for a while, BUT Pepper (the 9 month old Golden Retriever puppy) has decided recently to ‘help’ it fall apart.

So, I decided to sew it back together (and then I will take it to the laundry mat so it is clean).

What I used:

-Heavy Duty Mattress/seat ‘curved’ needle

-Coats Extra Strong Upholstery Thread  (much stronger than invisible thread/fishing line)

The curved needle made this job a lot easier than I expected.

It still took some time since almost every time I sat on the floor to work on it Pepper decided she wanted to sit on me or the rug.

Yeah – Another item off my To Do List.

What project have you finished lately? – H
