Each piece is individual, the work does not require special equipment and machines. So we decided to sew (or to knit) such a patchwork rug.

We need:

Long strips of fabric (old sheets and curtains are ideal, and far easier to work with than t-shirt scraps sewn together to make them longer)

Sewing scissors

A ruler

Pins

Safety pins

Sewing needle(s)

 

Sew three strips of fabric together. Fix with needles and begin to weave a long braid.

If one of the strips is finished, then sew the following directly in the process of knitting braids.

Note: If you’re making a square or rectangular rug, you can just make a bunch of braids that are the same length, so all you have to do is sew them together side-by-side. For oval or circular rugs, you’ll need a very long, continuous braid so you can coil it.
