How to Make a Fabric Rug with Trim


hi guys it’s alyssa from online fabric
store today i’m gonna show you a super easy way to make a rug we all know rugs
can be insanely expensive and this projects really great because you can
make a super high quality and really beautiful rug without breaking the bank
so let’s get started cut your fabric to the desired size I am
making mine four and a half by 6 feet I made my rug the width of my fabric by
two yards so I don’t actually have to cut that piece also cut a piece of trunk
liner that is about 1 inch smaller than your fabric all the way around fold the
raw edge in towards the wrong side of a fabric and pin upholstery fabric is best
because it’s more durable than other fabrics I’m using an outdoor upholstery
fabric that is stain and water resistant place the trim under your fabric and
start sewing around the edges you can also place the trim on top like in the
case of this cheetah print rug I made earlier but either way I found it easier
not to pin down the trim before sewing when you get to the end
tuck the trim under and sew then cut off the extra trim Spray the right side of the lining and
the underside of the outdoor fabric with spray adhesive Center the lining on the wrong side of
the outdoor fabric Greg helped me in this step because having someone hold
each corner was the easiest way to get the lining to lay down flat lay your rug
out flat and let it dry for a few hours your rug should not be used in a
high-traffic area and should have a rug pad underneath it so it doesn’t slip
around and now your rug is complete thanks for watching this OFS project
