    Cool

    Wow, that looks pretty easy. I remember my mother making rag rugs buy cutting them in strips and then crocheting them into a rag rug. This is "more" cool.

    Does it say what size needle to use in your machine. A regular or a heavy duty needle?

    What size needle do you use. I have seen these before but am afraid of breaking needles right and left. This may have been asked already and appoligize if it has but not sure I want to read through 29 pages.
    Thanks a bunch

    I'm confused about the sewing. Do you do something special with the tension? I cannot imagine sewing through rope, but I love the idea!

    Feel the fear and do it anyway!

    You can make placemats doing this also, either scrappy or cut your strips of material in the colors you want. There are a number of neat things you can do with the rope and fabric.
