I am a huge fan of braided rugs. I would love to have one in my home. I think they inspire the Anne of Green Gables in me, that basic vintage life and I long for. But they cost so much. I realized that if I want one in my home I will need to make it. I've gathered scraps of material for years, intending on braiding one yet I realize the work that goes into braiding and sewing them together might be a bit daunting. I changed focus a little bit and found this rope in my stash and thought that it might be the perfect balance of making a rug without the labor of braiding strands of fabric together.
Really it is quite simple. I used an overlock stitch on my sewing machine to bind the two cords together, then the time is spent going round and round. This is just the beginning. I'll up date this post when I have it finished.
