Jelly Roll Rug

This cute area rug uses one Jellyroll precut, or you can cut your own 2-1/2 in strips to coordinate your room colors. We use batting and a folding technique to create our “rope” coils. This rug will remind you of the old fashioned braided rugs, only with a new twist.... And you made it yourself! A fun and relaxing project. 

You have a little bit of homework/prep work before you come to class!
