Here is one awesome tutorial! With just a little money you can make a cool rug for yourself! All you need is about 4 hours and crafty will. Try it , and decorate your home without spending a lot of money! And have fun!
1. unroll the white one face down and draw on the back where you want stripes..
Use a box cutter with a new blade (it has to be sharp…it makes it SOOOO much easier) and cut out pieces.
Then lay “patterns” on the second rug
And trace them out.
Then using box cutter , cut them out.
Then you start piecing it together.
The tape you can use is pressure sensitive seaming tape. If you are using the same pile height of carpet you *may* be able to use normal carpet tape that you melt the glue with a seaming iron BUT it’s recommended to do this . It is soooo sticky and lets face it.
Then you tape over it.
I am sure you are wondering about binding it. I just made sure that each of the pieces that touched an edge had binding on them, ( I didn’t cut them out of the middle of the rug) and it lined up pretty great.
Oh and this is what the back looked like when it was all done:
Not so cute. But no one is going to see that….
