Curious: Did the King of Hearts look like a one-off custom rug or a homemade project or was it something commercially made?

It was a handmade project by the owner.  She bought the kit and made the rug.  Except it is not really a rug it is a wall hanging.  It would go great there in Vegas.

We get strange rugs more and more often. Any kind of shag fiber, from cut-out shapes in felt to rayon upholstered rubbers tubes, to fist-sized “pillow” tufts made of fuzzy polyester. One of the most odd is the tufted rug made out of silk neckties.

We had a multi colored poly pillow rug in the shop a few months back. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing

My favorite. Artist makes a form for the head out of clay and attaches felt cut-outs to a backing.

Whole internet full of wonder out there… I keep being drawn back to the weird-carpet photo gallery being built here. :)
