Jelly Roll Rugs are all the rage right now. Join the craze and learn how to make a one! One Jelly Roll (40 pre-cut 2 ½ “ strips) will make one rug. They look awesome and really brighten up a room. You can personalize your space with your favorite color scheme of fabric collection. And to top that off you can easily make them into placemats or centerpiece mats too!
This is a two session class using one of the patterns by Roma Lambson and RJ Designs. In the first session we will prep the strips and the in the second session we will sew the rug together.
