If you love working with fabric strips as much as I do, you will enjoy this new pattern we recently released – Roxy The Forest Fox Rug. It’s a fun and quick Jelly Roll project or you can cut your own fabric strips. The pattern includes instructions on how to finish a rug without a background, as well as a rug with a background and a giant block that you can turn into a quilt if you wish.
In this pattern, I used Clockworks Batiks strips by Island Batik, purchased from Missouri Star Quilt Co.
Using this single set of Clockworks Batiks and some solid fabrics for background, I managed to make 3 different projects:
- Orange fox rug without a background
- Blue fox rug with a background
- Brown fox quilt
It’s very easy to add borders to the large block and turn it into a quilt instead of making a rug.
I enjoy wearing jeans and as a result, I am in possession of a multitude of old pairs that I find great joy in repurposing. Upcycling prevents wasting potentially useful materials and reduces our environmental footprint by saving the planet from waste. It helps to decrease our spending and increase creativity. Rugs made from denim scraps look fantastic, so you can always use denim strips as upcycling material instead of Jelly Roll strips. You can find some rug ideas and patterns HERE on our site.
