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!!


  1. This looks like the perfect use for those Wonder Clips. I'm glad you are enjoying your rug making project. Those Kaffe colors really pop!

  2. Gonna be a pretty rug. Too pretty to step on.

  3. Oh what a great project--love those colors--just beautiful--
    nice job on this hugs, Julierose

    1. Thanks so much, Julierose! I think it's such a great way to use a jelly roll!!
