I found the coolest project over at the Moda Bake Shop. It’s a rug you make by weaving long pieces of fabric together and then tacking them down. It is finished with a non-slip rug backing and turns out just beautifully. It looked like the perfect gift for my mom.
It also looked like too much fun to resist. So, I picked up a jelly roll (long, pre-cut strips of lots of different kinds of fabric) from my favorite local fabric store. Oh, those ladies at Holly Hock are so nice. I just love to shop there!
I made a few changes to the pattern to make it work for me. I think it turned out great!
The non-slip rug backing I used is actually the stuff you can use to line the shelves of your cabinets. It was the perfect size!
I can’t wait to give this to my mom! Hope she doesn’t see it here first. ;)
What a fun and easy project! It would be a great way to use up some fabric scraps, too!
Next up on my sewing table is a fabulous fabric purse that features grommets and lots of pockets inside. I can’t wait to start on it!
What are you creating right now?
