A Pretty and Frilly Ruffled Rug DIY

I love projects that give you an opportunity to make it your own.  This DIY ruffled rug is just that project.  A cotton flannel fabric will make a room feel like a cabin and it’s washable.  If you aren’t a sewer try using a glue gun instead.  Thanks to Craft Goodies for this sweet idea.

 Super thrilled and excited, but really shocked–I WON! I’m usally really great at second place, seems to be a trend for me, but not this time. I’m not quite sure how to handle it…
I guess I’ll start with telling you how I made this little combo, starting with the rug.
This really was easy, just took a little bit of time.
I had a bunch of canvas drop cloth left over from my camp chairs so decided to use that as the base for the rug.
I knew the size of rug I wanted (4×5 finished) so I cut the canvas to just over double that
(4 ft 1 inch x 10 ft 1 in). Folded it in half, sewed the two side seams, flipped it right side out, tucked under 1/2 an inch and sewed it shut.
Using a sharpie and a yard stick I marked out the lines for my ruffles. I cut my ruffle fabric (jersey knit so I didn’t have to hem it!) into 4 inch wide strips so my lines are 2.5 inches apart, allowing for lots of overlap.
