IDEA #1

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!

Materials:

  • 2 sets of 5 colors of fabric, 8-10″ wide and 3 meters long
  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Thread

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 4: Pick the first piece of fabric on the left and the second piece and tie it, bringing it up to the top.

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 6: Work from the other side, moving from the right to the center.

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!!
