DIY fur rug
As you’ve probably seen, I don’t do house DIYs all that frequently. Mainly, because I’ve never really had the plan for it – huge home decor jobs equal more dollars than quick clothing or jewelry jobs do. In addition, I’m a renter, therefore trilling holes into wall space or performing major remodeling never been possible. But, I was all onboard when my brother asked us to make a faux fur rug for him.
We offered our Tallinn local rental apartment to my cousin and his gf. In trade, i got eventually to live indeed there for another 2 months after Rein had currently relocated to Germany. So, I happened to be a lot more than happy to assist them to settle in.
My cousin had their heart set on getting a faux fur rug for living room, but all of the people we looked over had been slightly pricey because of their taste. So, we advised we attempt to DIY one. Now, faux fur fabric can certainly be costly, but fortunately we found one for sale that people liked. Earn!
Here’s how I made it happen:
- Faux fur material in size of your desired carpet (ours was 150cmx220cm)
- Solid cotton fiber or cotton-blend fabric when it comes to backing (adequate to cover the rear of the rug)
- Photo mount squirt glue
- abdominal muscles Latex (present craft shops and employed for making non-slippery socks)
- Large prejudice binding (2x the width of your rug)
First, I trimmed the slice sides of fur fabric to ensure the sides were all 90 levels. I utilized a canvas as a ruler, you can use anything that’s a rectangle or square form.
Time and energy to slice the backing. We lined the complete rug with a thick cotton fabric We already had within my stash. It’s a vintage textile that dad provided me with. Because it was not as large whilst the carpet, I'd to reduce two blocks – the blocks should be about 10cm more than the carpet textile. We cut the blocks narrower so the 2 obstructs would overlap by about 15 cm. When possible, buy a bit of fabric that’s currently similar width as the rug textile together with correct size. You'll be able to simply miss this task :).
