Needlewoman Claire Amstrong loves original designs to create comfort in the interior. Once the girl decided to free the wardrobe from the old clothes and make a rug an interesting configuration. For the project, you can use different things, but she chose soft wool sweaters.
The needlewoman wanted the rug to have a felt texture. For this, sweaters had to be washed in hot water (“boiling” mode). Erase things of different colors separately, then each will retain its brightness. You can make a small rug from what is in the closet and add new layers to it as you accumulate unnecessary things. It is most convenient to lay out the elements of the rug on a fabric basis.
Strips of fabric for each other can be connected using textile glue or sew. Cut the washed and dried sweaters into strips of equal thickness. The thicker each strip will be, the higher the mat itself will be.
Divide the wool by color. In each element, you can combine several. If you use textile glue, apply it only on half a strip, so that the top edge remains clean. Your rug will be softer with this technique. Pin each helix with a pin until the glue dries.
You can glue all the strips in one mat, or make a set of spirals of different sizes. Connect the elements with a glue gun. If there is free space between the spirals, fill it with stripes.
Glue the remaining strips around the edges to create the shape you want.
