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.

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.
The finished rug, from Roma Lambson of RJ Designs, is about 30″ x 44″. Change the size by adjusting the number of strips used.
The rug will go together more quickly if you use pre-cut batting. You’ll need 50 yards of 2 1/2″ wide batting strips (found here).
