Been giving it some thought over the last few days and came up with the idea of lots of punched circles in lots of colours and placing them in a design....
A more formal but simple design 

....taken from the cross stitch design below
You could make a rug from any cross stitch or grid design...replace each stitch/square with a punched circle and then a pompom for the design

A simple strip like this one would work well in a pompom rug
Getting the design right before you start stitching them to the backing is easier in the long run
Below is a variation on the first cross stitch pattern..
another very simple design...
and a Picasa Collage of the cross stitch pattern as a repeat to make a large rug of small pompoms
I can see lots of simple cross stitch design that could be made into pompom rugs
can you?
Hows this for a great use of  cross stitch...
another variation...
from Bloesem
or may be a free Needlepoint Design like this would make a great pompom rug

Hugs to all x
