About This Class


In this 15-minute-course I guide you through the process of creating a lovely Rug made of rope and fabric strips. It's surprisingly simple to do and truly addictive.

Even if you have just started out sewing this project is suited for you - you don't need fancy equipment or expensive materials: A very simple sewing machine, rope and jersey or cotton fabric scraps will do.

I will show you in this course where to get all materials, how to prepare your sewing machine and workspace and what to consider when making fabric strips (or t-shirt yarn) yourself. This is a wonderful project to give old clothes, bed sheets or fabric scraps a second chance.
