Might it be possible to earn a BB for repairing/mending a coil-woven rug? Would this be equivalent to an invisible stitch of some kind?

Here are a couple photos of what I mean. It's a coil rug in the Fisher Price House at Wheaton Labs, where the stitching for a few sections of the rug has broken or otherwise disappeared. I've been re-connecting coils to one another with hand-sewing, such that the sewing/thread used is not visible on one side of the rug. Personally, it's been a significant project, and I know it will be useful for the residents.





If this is possible, for which BB would it qualify?

Looking at the list, I'm not spotting anything related to carpets/rugs. I think it'd be great to add that in, but I'm not sure if it'd be added anytime soon.

In the meantime, I'm thinking you could probably post it to Oddball with an estimate of the hours you spent and what you think a professional would spend on mending it. I don't see why that wouldn't count for Oddball points! It never hurts to have an Oddball air badge!

Thanks for the input, Nicole! I ought to finish it this coming weekend, and will likely submit for an Oddball once it's done, as you suggest.

I have completed by Textile BB! I have always liked messing with twines, threads, fabrics and the like, but this has given me a chance to really get into it and see it's worth. Thanks to everyone who gave me this chance!
