today at isavirtue we have a guest post by one of my blogger friends - gentri lee. gentri and i bonded over our fear of flying and our love for giveaways. i'm so excited to have her here today. she is going to show you a diy - and it's a skill that is not in my own arsenal so pay attention!
"hello to all of you isavirtue readers! my name is gentri and i am visiting from my blog, gentri lee. i was so excited to win kaitlyn's giveaway which included this guest post. i've never won a giveaway before and was beginning to think it was impossible! (*a note from kaitlyn, gentri doesn't know this but when kaitlyn's husband pulled out the giveaway names he read her name as "gunther!")
today i'm going to show you how to make a rug. what's that? you don't think you can do it? well i have news for you! this is just about the easiest thing i've ever made - and that's coming from someone who stinks when it comes to crafting. oh, and i'm so sorry for the terrible photos. i don't have my computer at the moment and can't use my camera because of it. so you get iphone photos. hooray!
heavy fabric - upholstery fabric or really heavy fabric
rubber backing (you can find this at any fabric store)
fourth | let it dry for a good eight hours or more. when it's fully dry, go ahead and trim the edges - and then you're done.
now you've got a great rug made specifically for your space without the giant price tag (note: i used a fur fabric so i don't need to worry about fraying. if you pick a fabric that may fray, there are edging products you can buy).
i made this rug for my mom's surprise birthday craft room makeover. if you want to see the rest of the room and crafts, i'll be posting pictures today on my blog and the reveal pictures tomorrow! just pop on over to my blog (click here) and let me know you're visiting from isavirtue!
thank-you so much kaitlyn for letting me visit!
