Fabric strips Rug
Shag cloth Rugs are smooth and comfortable, hot and inviting and very fashionable; making all of them the right addition to a nursery or playroom. Therefore, when it emerged time and energy to select a rug for infant Riley’s nursery, i possibly couldn’t think of a rug more perfect than a shag cloth rug. That is, until I began pricing them on the net and understood the large price that included it. That’s whenever my DIY lamp moved off….A DIY Shag Rag Rug had been the solution! My husband believed it had been a bad idea simply because of how long it would just take us to make, but naturally, that performedn’t stop myself! 🙂 I happened to be bound and determined having a shag rug for Riley’s nursery, and do you know what??? My Do-it-yourself Shag Rag Rug proved GREAT, it appears to be a great deal much better than we imagined!
While this was the easiest projects I’ve ever before done; it absolutely was additionally hands-down the MOST time-consuming task I’ve ever tackled. We labored on my Do-it-yourself Shag Rag Rug every single day for 2-4 hours just about every day plus it however took myself 4 weeks to perform. I happened to be really starting to question if I had been ever going to get it done, but used to don’t call it quits! Although, I’m not going to rest, I thought about making it smaller quite a few times simply therefore I could be completed with it. Thankfully we chatted myself from it and held pushing ahead! 🙂
My DIY Shag Rag Rug price around $130 which will make ($110 on textile and around $20 in the non-slip carpet mat). I am aware that feels like a great deal, but if We had been buying this carpet it could price between $400-$680.00, Crazy…Right!?!
The inspiration for my Do-it-yourself shag-rag Rug originated in this Pink Shag Rug from Directly Home it really is a 4’7 x 7’7 therefore it’s slightly bigger than my 4 x 6 carpet; nonetheless basically were buying this carpet it can price $679.00.
Okay, let’s begin!
Here's what you will need (I included the links where you are able to purchase the Rug Pad and Fabric that we employed for my shag-rag Rug)
Step one: Cut your rug mat towards desired shape and size. If you are going which will make your carpet the actual size/shape associated with carpet mat then you can certainly skip this step.
Step two: Cut your textile into strips. I think it’s easier much less time consuming if you cut multiple strips at a time. Start with folding your fabric in half vertically after that fold in half once more horizontally ensuring the finishes tend to be since even as possible. Then you need determine 5 ins from the bottom of this fabric and draw a horizontal line completely across utilizing your fabric chalk.
Reduce your material across the chalk line
Today cut your material into straight pieces which are about 3/4″ broad
3: get a material strip along with your jewellery tweezers
Step: Weave Fabric under among the holes and back-up through another gap (I weaved the fabric in a straight course). We left one row of holes empty on all edges.
Step 5: Pull the textile so that it’s also on both edges and connect it into a knot (this can hold the fabric in position)
If you work with two colors you then should alternate colors while you get.
Continue incorporating Fabric Strips alternating colors while you get. It will probably look bare initially but the more rows you add the fuller it's going to get. Here is what it appears to be like after incorporating two rows of material

And after days of repeating the exact same steps over and over repeatedly I finally completed the shag-rag Rug for Riley’s Nursery!
