FRIENDSHIP BRACELETS, I can’t remember how many I did when I was younger…I believe that many of you already know how to do it too. Nowadays, they are a new trend, not to wear but to inspire. The process is very simple and can be also applied to create a fabric pattern.
Today I’ll show you how to do a CHAIR CUSHION and a RUG. Making them takes very few sewing skills, so it could be a fun project for kids, too. The result is very naïf but very beautiful. With the extra that is homemade, washable and veeeeery economic!
- 2 sets of 5 colors of fabric, 8-10″ wide and 3 meters long
Step 1: Line the colors up how you’d like them to appear in rows on the rug/cushion.
Step 2: Mirror the colors on the other side of the line.
Step 3: Fix the endings to the chair with a tie (for the cushion) or to the floor with adhesive tape (for the rug).
Step 5: With the first piece, move onto the next piece of fabric on the right and repeat the process. Continue untill you achieve the center of the colors.
Step 7: When the two pieces of the same colour meet in the middle, tie them together.
Step 8: Go onto the next row and repeat the process started on step #4.
Step 9: Work until you’ve finished your desired length.
Step 10: Cut the ends off so that they hide into the first layer of color.
Step 11: Stich the ends to the first layer so it’s secure and can’t wiggle out.
And here it is the rug! As Barney would say: AWESOME!!
