Recently we put in new laminate floors in our remodeled kitchen. Laminate floors DO NOT like water – so rugs are necessary. I hemmed and hawed until I found the right rugs – one for the back door and two long runners for the sink and stove area. While cooking bacon in the microwave , some of the drippings fell to the rug – I thought that I would throw the rug into the washer after feeding the hubby but, I forgot and ran off to work…..when I came home from work I saw that my pups – smelled the bacon and gave that rug a good lickin ! I searched - You Tube and Google for a solution. The rugs cost about twenty five dollars a piece and I didn’t want to replace them – I loved them and the store was out of them already. I first tried my sewing machine with the feed dogs down – no luck because of the rubber backing. I then got out my needle and thread…..I used a wool appliqué needle with a large eye. I double threaded the needle with coordinating color - black. I just smooshed the yarn over the holes and darned away – see the pictures of before, during and after. I am so very happy I did this.
Rug # 2 – another new rug – I think the pups just hooked a nail on this one…..
