I was dumbfounded when I saw how she made this beautiful floor mat (which can also be used as a cushion cover too).
When you first see this, it’s pretty intimidating because it looks like a lot of work, but when you watch the tutorial you’ll be very surprised that it’s not difficult at all to make.
She basically folds over double pieces of fabric like a napkin and attaches them to her strips of fabric sewing them down as she goes along. She does rows of these (a row of solid and then a row of floral print) and sews them in to a circle or oval shape, repeating this until the whole circle is full. My explanation may not be the easiest to understand, so make sure to watch the attached tutorial for more clarity.
After seeing this amazing project she does it’s a good reminder that you never have to throw out old clothes again, with so many amazing projects to upcycle clothes. From rag rugs to fashion accessories, upcycling old clothing has become a DIY trend.
Watch how this lady with craft2315 makes this lovely rug in her step by step tutorial so you can get started upcycling your old clothes and give them a whole new life!
