Construction mesh, hoop and cardboard instead of a loom
The rug will add comfort to any room. But the room will acquire a special charm, if the product is made by hand. But today we will not knit rugs with crochet or knitting, and consider the unusual weaving techniques using a cardboard base, a painting grid and a hula hoop (hoop). But first, consider the simplest options for weaving a rug from fabric strips and rope:
The product is a web of stitched long spit. It is made of fabric strips, cut from old things that have similar density and thickness. The bands at the base are stitched together, and then woven into a braid.
Schematically it looks like this:
How to make a braided rug of braids
- the seams in the braids should be in different places, and not on the same line - to avoid rough sections in the finished canvas;
- drawings on the products form the selection of ribbons of different colors;
- Stitching braids should be performed on a flat surface to make the product flat.
How to make a rug out of rope
The scheme of the product is quite simple, it takes only a little time to figure out the direction of the thread. To create a rug measuring 83 by 40 cm, you need 50 meters of nylon rope, 1.5 cm thick.
To facilitate the work, use a large sheet of paper with a drawn cross, the size of which should coincide with the size of the future product.
At the end of the rope, make a large knot, ensuring that the size matches the desired boundaries of the rug to be created. Wind about 80 cm into a ball and set it aside on the right side of the loop. "Ears" pull it down.
Referring to the picture, move the elongated loops first to the left, and then put the left one on the right.
Unwind the ball and pull it under the first intersecting cord, after the left double loop, and then under the last cord.
Lay the second part of the rope along the outlined base, placing the cord below or above the figure being formed.
After the end of work, make the ends on the wrong side, secure. On the same side, lightly sweep the rope together at the weave.
How to weave a rug from a yarn on a cardboard basis
To create a rug will need:
- yarn of different thickness and color;
- decorative braid;
- cardboard, from which you will need to make a blank - a circle of at least half a meter in diameter;
To make a cardboard base for weaving a rug, you must tie a string on the pencil. Press its edge to the center of the cardboard blank so that, when stretched, the pencil does not reach the edge of the cardboard 2 cm. Draw a circle and cut it.
The cardboard circle is drawn as shown in the photo. Ideally, you should get 60 lines passing through the center. Then, moving the scissors around the perimeter of the workpiece, make shallow cuts to the center on each line.
Secure the skeleton thread on the circle with adhesive tape, pressing its tip with adhesive tape on the wrong side of the cardboard blank. Wind the cardboard blank with yarn as in the photo.
It is better to start weaving the rug with a thin yarn, since in the center the frame threads are arranged very tightly. Having fastened its edge on one of the thread rays of the base, hide the tail, and pass the rest of the thread under and above the diagonal cords. This can be done through one or through two frame threads.
When the end of the piece of yarn remains 10 cm, hide this tail under the frame threads, and instead take the next thread.
Pull the braid, achieving even rows and lack of gaps. Having filled about 10 cm of yarn with a yarn in diameter, you can start weaving the yarn with a thicker one and stretching it according to the following pattern: above two threads, under one.
Continue to work until you achieve the desired size of the rug. If you want, you can go to the weaving scheme 1 through 1.
Having finished building up the area of the rug, cut the warp threads and tie them in pairs. The seamy side of the rug may be slightly untidy, but the protruding tails can be hidden in the weave.
To disguise the knots from the frame threads, tie strings of the remaining threads on each loop.
