DIY Felt Tip Rug

Ready Made

Zigzags are all the rage -- part Missoni, part Charlie Brown -- they add a winsome, yet modern touch to your decor. Why not take a stab at creating your own zigzag rug? Ready Made magazine shows us how...

Their Felt Tip rug tutorial tells you how to cut and sew a rug that we think is perfect for a boy's room. Inspired by Scandinavian textiles and working with a small budget, the tutorial requires wool felt, fusible interfacing, non-slip rug pad and a few other items. The tutorial is easy enough for a beginner crafter but yields results that look as though you've been making your own rugs for years.
