Weekend Project: Marimekko Wall Hanging from Surrur

I've been obsessed with wall hangings lately. If it hangs on the wall and made of fabric, preferably something drippy with loops and tangles and fringes, I'm all over it. So I shouldn't have been surprised that I immediately zeroed in on the Rya Rug, one of the DIY projects in Mari Savio & Kati Rapia's new craft book Surrur (the title mimics the sound a sewing machine makes)

A classic Finnish craft, this rug is made out of piles of strips of stretchy tricot, a t-shirt type fabric. Hang a rug canvas or net on the wall, slip a strip of fabric through one of the holes and knot in place. Start it over the weekend and get your friends and family involved!
