Well, actually it IS…once you figure out this is what you want to make! It took me about 3 hours tonight to finally figure out that THIS is what I was looking for!
So tonight I starting poking around the net to find a variation on this that I could make work, and after MUCH research….finally
hit the jack pot!
I’m reminded of that line from the 1997 movie “Fools Rush In”, with Matthew Perry, when he says to Salma Hayek, “You are everything I never knew I always wanted!” haha! That was it! I fell in love with a rug! ;-)
I realize putting “No Sew” in the title of this post might be a TEENY bit misleading…because you do need to use a needle and thread at the end as you coil the braid…but there’s no need to haul out the sewing machine…so technically…in my book of rationale….it’s No Sew. :-)
UPDATE: 11/26/2011I took 4 of my husband’s old shirts that were in the “rag bag” headed to GoodWill and cut them up into strips. (Time consuming…but kind of fun!) I have started my rug…it is approximately 8 inches in diameter right now (when coiled up). I’m not following any sort of “pattern”, but doing one shirt at a time. So it will definitely be interesting to see how it turns out. :-) Will post pictures soon!
