Tanyia ...It's a little time consuming but worth the effort. It took maybe a week to make and that was only working on it a couple hours a night.

Quilt455 ...It's not difficult at all to make. It is a process of wrapping 3/4" strips of fabric around 100% cotton clothesline. To sew the rug/bowl/etc. you use a wide zig zag stitch. I'm there is bound to be tutorials on youtube somewhere.

True ...The rug is approximately 20" x 24" and that's just guessing. It's not hard at all to make. Flat mats like this are the easiest shape to do. Bowls, baskets, etc. are slightly more difficult only because you have to learn the angles at which to hold your bowl while sewing. Look on youtube for how to videos. I'm sure there has to be some out there.

thank you, I am adding it to my list of things to learn to do. I just think it is wonderful. I have been looking for a rug for my front door area.
Since my colors are red, blue and yellow, I have not been able to find one. So now I will learn to make one. Thanks for the information, I will check you tube.

wow that looks like fun .. and fabric consuming ...

Quiltmaven

Strandkorbtraum It actually use a lot less fabric than you'd think. That rug has maybe half a yard wrapped on it...if that.
