Nothing says “country” more than a braided rug. Making a braided rug that requires no sewing once the braiding is done makes this technique even more attractive. It is also a great way to recycle, reuse and repurpose old T-shirts, sheets, or other linens, cloth or clothing which are no longer being used. In this class, students will learn how to get started and practice making a few rows of braids in their rug. No need to precut fabric strips. This will be done in class. Students will finish their rug outside of class time.
Fabric such as T-shirts, cotton or poly/cotton blend bed sheets or fabric and scissors for cutting fabric strips. It is best to use all T-shirt cloth, or all cotton or poly/cotton cloth - not some of each - in your rug. It takes approximately 3-4 lbs. of fabric to make a 2’x3’ rug.
