Make a Jelly Roll Rug with Maria (two sessions)
July 25 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
One event on July 25, 2020 at 10:00 am
July 18, 3:00 to 4:30 pm and July 25, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm | $70 | Registration required
Using a Jelly Roll, batting, and a sewing machine with a zigzag stitch, you can create this 30″ x 40″ rug. There’s a sample in the shop that you have to see as you’ll be amazed at the texture or even that it originated from a Jelly Roll.
The shop sample uses just half a pack so you can even make a larger one, if you’d like. Or start with the smaller one, learn the technique in class, and make a larger one on your own.
If your sewing machine doesn’t have a zigzag stitch, no problem; you can rent one of our Janome machines.
The Jelly Roll Rug class is a lot of fun and you will be able to complete one rug in 2 days. This rug looks great in any room of your house; it also makes a great gift for a baby or wedding shower.
