Braided Rug

I have been working on Christmas cards this week and my brain is a little confused to be in heat of up to 35 and drawing snowflakes. So afterwork I have been playing with fabrics and making bits & bobs. I have always wanted to make a braided rug and finally I decided to give it a go, and it is very simple to do.

Simply cut or tear strips of fabric 3" wide and plait 3 lengths together, if you tear the fabric which I did, you will get frayed edges and this just shabby's it up a little. I am going to make a rug for my future verandah! hopefully by the end of the weekend it will be finished as it grows very quickly.

Have a lovely weekend x
