Have you ever wondered what to do with that stack of Jelly Rolls in your sewing room? Why not make a rug for your sewing room, or any other room that needs brightening up? Or you can find that perfect jelly roll to add to your decor in a specific room. You can also cut your own 2 1/2" strips from whatever fabric you like. This class will turn the 2 1/2" strips and some batting in to a colorful rug. You need a machine that will stitch straight and a 5.5mm zig zag stitch.
