Fabric Wrapped Rug 2.....Done!



This is the second rug I have created by

wrapping fabric around clothesline

then zig zag stitching it together...




These are a great deal of FUN!






This one is for a baby boy nursery...






I used medium gray thread for the stitching...






3/16 inch cotton clothesline...






Size 90 needle in the sewing machine...






400 feet of clothesline creates a 

39 inch circle.


I used 5 yards of fabric and

nearly 2,000 yards of thread.


Give it a try.....lots of FUN!









Here are a few random images

captured through my camera lens:

Like to know more about the rug. Types of fabric used? can u hand sew it together? What is the process? Winding the fabric around the clozeline? Great idea!!

I also love the rug and would like to know more about the fabric used, how you stitched it together on your machine, etc. I have a new grandbaby and would love to make one for her room. Thanks for sharing.
