How To Make Beautiful Rugs?

Posted by Heartland Braided on February 18th, 2017

Creation of beautiful rugs is a very complicated task. It depends upon your skill set and interest level. You will need long strips of fabric along with sewing scissors also. You also need a ruler along with pins and safety pins also. You may need a sewing needle or pair of them if you are going to stitch oval braided rugs. You need coloured threads and robust fabric to make good quality of rugs. As these rugs are sturdy and can be used for a long time, it is important to use upcycled fabric to make sure the properties are intact.

You can use a monochromatic palette or neutral shades so that you can increase the lifespan of the rug. You need to also decide the best places where you are going to keep the rugs. It will help you to determine the shape and size apart from choosing the colour palette also. If it is for the kitchen, you might need a rectangular piece which is large enough to stand on. If it is for the children room, you need a round or oval shape rug. It is important to consider the amount of space in the room without disturbing the furniture. It will help you to weave the right rug with the appropriate size.

You need to take a sharp pair of scissors to cut the fabric into long strips. You need to ensure that they are of equal width and length. If there are slight deviations, you need not worry about it at all. One of the best ways to do is to take a ruler and cut the little notches along with the edges of the fabric.

Once, you have a nice and big pile of fabrics strips, you need to roll them into three equal sized balls. You need to overlap ends and use a needle/thread to sew hearth rugs.

You need to grab an end from each of the three balls to sew them together. You also need to take a safety pin and pin the edge to a couch, curtain, or other sturdy fabric which you can use to secure it as you work. It is very important to balance the machine and apply strokes to weave the rug so that it is strong and durable.

You can also buy the round braided rugs to ensure there are no issues at all if you do not know how to weave the rug.
