Step 1

Unroll the fabric strips, then plan which order you want the colors to be, then cut them to the length that the pattern requires, grab one strip, and lay a batting strip on top of the wrong side. Fold over both sides towards the center, then fold it in half, and clip it in place. Sew the strip down the center, then proceed to sew the rest of the strips, and then sew the strips together using a zigzag stitch.

Step 2

Give them a good press every now and then, continue sewing each unit of strips together until you’ve completed the rug, then cut out the pattern, lay it on top of the pieced strips, clip it in place, and trace the shape. Remove the pattern, then cut off the excess fabric following the traced line, and then sew the bias tape around the whole rug.
