    Love it, do you have to use a slip resistant bottom? How many layers did you use? Very pretty, will add to my every increasing list.

    I do use the slip resistant bottom that I buy at Wal Marton tile floors, these work great on carpet.
    I used 6 layers, several were the cheaper Wal mart fabrics just to blend in.
    These were lots of fun to make, I have several laid out to complete. They make great gifts!
    Thanks for the compliments!!

    I love your rug! Was your fabric already striped, or did you piece together strips to get that striped effect? Also, if already striped, was it printed on the diagonal? I thought the cuts had to be made diagonal to the grain of the fabric. Sorry for all the questions, but I want to learn so I can make them for myself.

    These are so easy, all you do is:
    1) take 6 layers of cotton fabrics, square up to the size you want, Mine is 24 x 36. this fabric was striped on the diagonal which made it extra easy.
    2) Otherwise you mark your first line diagonally and sew, then you use your guide to sew the next lines 1/2 inch apart, Sew entire area of fabric keeping seams 1/2 inches apart.
    3) Square up.
    4)Cut top 3 layers in between all seams.
    5) Bind as you would a quilt.
    6) Wash, Dry and shake out and you are done!!!
    Beautiful Creation!!!!

    This is really pretty, and sounds super easy and fun.

    One more question - do you find little bits of thread all over your house from the chenille? I'm just curious if it sheds or not...and perhaps even how well it would hold up in the wash.

    I am thinking of making some, but they would be for a high-traffic area and therefore, be washed often and walked upon many times a day. Therefore, the questions :)
