Fabric strips are wrapped around cotton rope, coiled, and stitched together with a wide zigzag stitch. The result is a charming rug you can display just about anywhere.
You’ll need a lot of fabric strips that are 1″ to 2″ wide and a good amount of thread. The rope can be found at a hardware store. Make your rug as large or small as you want, following the designers suggestions for keeping it flat while stitching.
While it should come out of the washing machine looking great, the designer, Jodie of Ric Rac, says of hers:
“… it is too big to go in my washing machine so I expect I will treat it like a regular rug. I will give it a bashing every now and again and then use a carpet shampoo when it is grotty (or just turn it over to the clean side at first).”
