Real needlewomen always find the use of the remains of fabric, creating unique items for decorating the interior. We suggest getting acquainted with the version of making mats from the remains of fabric, thanks to which it is possible to use with advantage the available trimming material or obsolete clothing.
Depending on what purpose is before you – the creation of home textiles that are ideally written off into the interior, or the utilization of the remains of the fabric – the product can be monophonic or multicolored.
Traditional “patchwork” products are divided into simple and complex, the first differ raw edges, reducing the aesthetics of the finished product.
A complex rug from shreds cannot be made by any novice, but the proposed version has two advantages: firstly, it can even be used by a beginner, and secondly, its manufacture involves processing the edge of the fabric.
The basis for making the rug is a strip of cloth width of 7 cm, which should be bent on both sides by 0.7 cm and cut. The size of the finished product depends on the number of available strips, so the more you can do them, the greater the area of the quilted rug.
Then it is necessary to attach strips, for this purpose it is necessary to lay a machine stitch along the center of the strip, simultaneously pulling the upper thread. The uneven stretching of the threads with the simultaneous use of the presser foot provides a buffing effect.
After all the fabric strips have become corrugated, you should prepare the base for the mat from the dense fabric and process its edge with an oblique bake.
Corrugated strips are laid out with a spiral, starting from the center of the base.
Strips must be swept to the base and stitched. Experienced seamstresses can do without a preliminary basting, using an awl to fix small pieces of stripes beforehand. Of course, the use of simple and original technology cannot be limited to the manufacture of rugs alone. Sofa cushions with corrugated pillowcases, quilted covers on chairs or stools and much more you can create with your own hand from the shreds that are available in every house!
