The Nativity Latch Hook Rug Kit (or Christmas Tree Skirt)
Thought I would start a new tradition in our family of a 'Christmas Rug'! We have all the decorations hanging from the tree, ceiling, beams etc and the floor always misses out! I wanted it to be traditional and so chose The Nativity. There is Mary and Joseph kneeling beside Baby Jesus with the Star in the centre of the night sky. The Three Wise Men look over them whilst holding their gifts for Jesus and behind them are their camels. The Shepherds are in awe as are the donkey, cattle and sheep.
When deciding on the shape of this rug, circular seemed to be just the ticket as the story flows around the rug nicely, fitting all the main characters in. This kit also has a dual use as a 'Christmas Tree Skirt'. It is a large rug but I wanted it to make an impact plus you should still be able to see it in all it's glory when under a large tree.
If using this kit as a 'Christmas Tree Skirt' the very centre is left free from yarn, a square of canvas is cut away and bound just like the edges, leaving a hole to slot the tree's trunk through before placing it in it's stand. (Instructions on how to do this included)
