Hi there! I am finally done with this rug!! A friend asked if I would make her one for her bedroom. Of course, I have nothing else to do …right?!
This is a really easy craft, even your kids could help you.You only need 3 things…
You can purchase these non skid rug helpers at home improvement stores, craft stores, Walmart…very inexpensive. Three different colors, 1 yrd each.of a lightweight, almost sheer poly. Be sure it has some stretch to it. You can use any kind of fabric…this is just what I used. You can use one of these hook tools, crochet hook, or any kind you have.Here’s how I did it.
First you need to make long 1 1/2″ strips using all the material. Then you need to make 6″ strips. You can do this by wrapping it around something 6″…I used a book. Try a picture frame,etc. Keep wrapping around and around and around. When you come to the end of the strip, cut each end….like making a pom pom..
Starting from one corner, go inside down into one opening, then back up in the next opening…
It will look like this:
Pull each end tight and tie a knot:
This took hours and hours. Do this while watching a movie…every night for a couple of weeks.
It is very easy to do, just a bit time consuming…but I think it’s worth it!
The happy look on her face was so worth the effort.
