An Old SpongeBob Rug

A few weeks ago, we did a big clean up of the boys rooms. we went through every book, every toy and ever item of clothing, we moved dressers, shelves and the bed and cleaned EVERYTHING.

At that time our eleven year old expressed some dissatisfaction with his thread barren SpongeBob Square Pants rug. When we bought it, Parker was six and it was the perfect thing, but now he is just a wee bit old for it. That and it is in really bad shape.

i was looking at beading tools online today and came across the hook for a latch hook kit and was struck by inspiration. I made a pattern of Doctor Who's Tardis :

I turned it into a 22 page pattern, and it will require more than 25,000 individual pieces of yarn to make it.

When it is done, it will be 2footx4foot, and be epic. As well as the Tardis rug, I have ordered some vinyl Dalek wall stickers, and we are planning on purchasing a space themed wall mural.

His room will be epic.
