Throw turned into rug





Materials: Vilmie Rund throw, non-slip fabric, sewing machine

Description:
I’m a poor student, with a rather large living room, and have been trying to find a rug that’s big enough but still fairly cheap. I decided to try an experiment and it turned out really well in my opinion.

I used the Vilmie Rund throw and sewed it to the non-slip fabric (that you can get in any fabric store, by the meters).

- Get the non-slip fabric in any fabric store, usually sold by the meter.

- Sew the Vilmie Rund throw to the non-slip fabric on the long side of the throw, by folding the throw’s sides over the non-slip fabric (otherwise the fabric will get stuck in the sewing machine).

- Lay the plaid on the ground evenly, like you want it to be, and sew the short sides by hand.

    Oh my gosh! What a great idea! I have been searching for an affordable area rug to put over the carpet in front of my sofa, and not had much luck with finding one I like. This is an awesome alternative. Thanks for sharing!
