[Editor's Note: Katy from Sweet Verbena is starting to furnish her apartment. Like many of us she just had a rude awakening about how much rugs costs. Even 'cheap' machine rugs are not that cheap. This crafty lady was not going to let something like expense come between her and a chic chevron rug. Oh no. Prices be damned, Katy just decided to get all DIY about it and sew her own. You can too if you pop over to her blog and follow her handy dandy tutorial. - Jen]
