For those of you who have made the jelly roll rug patterns the #1 and #2 on the Checker site, drum roll, please….
The Colossal Round Rug comes in two sizes: a 38″ version that uses one jelly roll and a 54″ option that uses two. This is a slightly more advanced version because you have to learn how to stop cupping when sewing the curve – not hard, just a different technique!
Why not start a series of classes beginning with the easiest – the rectangular version:
Then offer a second class for the oval – which is an introduction to curves:
All three patterns use the pre-cut batting strips and jean needles. The newest version is due to arrive the middle of November so plan now!
These jelly roll rugs by R.J. Designs have been so popular that they have added a rectangular version for beginners. This version is created with straight strips and does not require any turning so even novices will be successful!
After all, who can’t sew a straight line??? Once you have mastered the technique of folding the fabric around 2 1/2″ strips of batting, you can move onto their top-selling pattern: See how different it looks in different colorways.
Choose to pre-cut your strips or start with a jelly roll; use batting scraps or buy pre-cut batting strips – the optional companions are listed with each pattern so get started today!
