Make A Braided Rug !

This is a great craft that will use up your fabric scraps and keep your floor warm.
Use old clothes and scrap fabric to make these.

1. Cut strips of cloth approx. 3 inches wide. Sew three strips together at one end to start. Braid these together. t helps to anchor your braid on a chair or something.

2.Keep braiding. As you get to the end of the strips sew on a new one.

3.To make your rug coil one end of the braid into a tight circle. Sew the edges together with strong thread.

4. Keep coiling and adding on to your strips till you get the size braid you want. When you are all done sew the end down.
