I saw this idea on pinterest and knew it would be perfect to use up some of my scrap fabric. I gathered up all the yellow, green and blue scrap fabric I had since the rug was going into Hendrix's room. The only other thing you need beside fabric is a rug pad base, which was the only thing I had to purchase for this project. I got mine from walmart (rug department) for about $6. I cut mine in half so my rug ended up being about 2ft x 3ft.
|2ft x 3ft|
I cut my strips of fabric 1 inch by 6 inches. I never actually counted how many strips I used, but lets just say I used A LOT. I actually gradually cut my strips during my spare time over a month. I'm not going to lie and say this is a quick one day project.
|I used one of my strips as a template and cut around it each time.|
So my strips weren't exact, but they don't have to be exact.
|Just a small portion of my fabric strips.|
|Threaded through the mat.|
|Underside of the mat. I skipped 2 lines of the mat |
in-between each row of fabric strips.
|1/4 of the way done.|
