This floor rug has 5 stripes.
Start your project by pinning two stripes together in the order you'd like them. Sewing each strip together. Continue pinning and sewing until all stripes are sewn together into a rectangle.
Iron your seams flat.
If you need to even your edges so it is straight all around do so
Now you will pin the rectangle with your stripes to the batting.
Pin all over so when you sew the batting to the rectangle your
batting won't move around. Flatten out your rectangle and start
pinning in the middle and work to the edges.
Sew down the middle of each stripe.
Lay your backing down on a table or floor right side down. Place
the batting rectangle in the middle of your backing. If your
backing is much larger than your rectangle you may want to trim it
to 5 inches excess.
Turn the backing up about 1/2 inch and then 1/2 inch again. Pin
in place. Continue this all around the edges.
Sew around the edges pulling out pins as you go.
