No Wrapping, Braiding or Crocheting!

Create all the charm of a rag rug without braiding or clothesline rope with this clever technique.  Start with 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips and add batting for an easy-to-construct rug.





It will be lovely next to the bed, in front of the kitchen sink, in the bathroom and elsewhere around the house. Plus, the rug is fully washable.

Choose a lovely jelly roll in colors you enjoy. Notice how you can arrange the strips to create concentric circles. And, of course, it’s wonderful in many color combinations.

While the instructions are for a rug, you can easily adjust the size for a table topper, place mats and more. This is a fun pattern to play with because it’s so versatile.

The process of making the rug is demonstrated in the following video from The Fabric Garden.

There are a few tips to keep in mind for best results. For example, use cotton batting instead of poly, otherwise your rug won’t lay flat. Katrina from Craft Warehouse provides additional tips here, plus requirements for place mats. (The photo at the top of the page is from that site – it appears that they used the original version of this fabric line.)

Kathy from Tamarack Shack originally ended up with a curved rug (a bowl!) and offers these insights. Her beautiful re-done rug is shown below.
