Jelly Roll Rug Part 2

No automatic alt text available.

I have begun sewing the strips to make my jelly roll rug. I was a little hesitant to begin but it turned out to be easier than I thought. The start of this strip is tapered and had to be cut a specific way. Once I had that done, it was a breeze! I just folded the jelly roll as directed in the pattern. I used these clips to keep my strip in place after folding it properly.

I kept both rolls in my lap, the batting and the jelly roll strip. I thought it would be very slow but it went faster than expected. I only sewed for a little over an hour and got about halfway through my jelly roll.

As the strip is being sewn, it's recommended that it be rolled into a large ball very similar to a ball of yarn. I used an elastic band to keep it together. This has been so fun so far! I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow. I want to keep going!!
