How to Make A Jelly Roll Rug
Finding the right rug to match your decor can be a little difficult. Whether you need a specific color or a unique pattern, sometimes it’s better to just make your own.
How, you ask? Well, if you have a jelly roll and a few other things, you can make a rug that matches exactly what you need. It’s really easy to do, too.
Jenny Doan is back again with another tutorial, this time with this jelly roll rug. Her tutorial with Missouri Star Quilt Company is super easy to follow, so all you need to do is grab your materials and get started!
Here are some of the things you’ll need:
- 1 Jelly Roll (2½” Strips)
- 1½ yds. Quilt Batting 90-96″ Wide
- 1200 yds. Thread
- Size 12-16 Jeans Needle
- Mary Ellen’s Best Press (or another effective starch)
- Batting Seam Tape – if you are cutting your own strips
- Sewing Machine (~5mm wide zigzag capability)
Tips & Tricks
As Jenny shows in her tutorial below, you’ll be working from the inside out. I started with a prepackaged jelly roll, but you can cut your own strips if you have the batting seam tape available.
Watch Jenny sew up this rug in the video below so you can get started on your own. Good luck!
