Have you ever considered on making a rug? Well I’ve been bouncing this idea on my mind for a couple of months now and I just couldn’t shake it of. I’ve been eying some super cute animal outline rugs from all over the great Internet (these being the cutest I’ve seen) and thought it would be cool to share a template for a rabbit with you guys, since Easter is coming fast and all.
This is a super easy project and you can use so many different materials for it, I’ve used faux fur from my local fabric shop but I think it would work great with industrial felt too, just to give you an example. I’ve included 3 sizes on the template for you to choose from – small, medium and large; I chose the large size for the girls room and they are loving it lots!
No Sew Rabbit Rug – DIY.
- Faux Fur or other material of your choice.
- Download Rabbit Rug Template HERE.
- X-Acto knife.
- Tailors chalk or your preferred tracing tool.
- Cutting mat.
Step 1 – Print and tape your template pages matching all the markings and numbers, just like a regular PDF sewing pattern. I like to fold the margins rather than cutting. Cut the size you want to make.
Step 2 – Place your template on the wrong side of your faux fur, and place some weights on top so that it doesn’t shift while you’re tracing.
Step 3 – Carefully trace the template on the faux fur with the chalk or marker.
Step 4 – Place your fabric on your cutting mat and use your X-Acto knife to carefully cut through the fabric. Don’t make much pressure so that you don’t cut through the fur just the first layers.
Note: If your faux fur starts to fray (mine doesn’t) you might want to use something like Fray Check to prevent it from happening when you finish cutting.
And you’re done!
Ha Easy peasy right? And the best part is that you can make so many different versions. How cute would it be to make a door mat with the small template to welcome your guests during Easter Holidays?!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
