Introduction: Painted Fabric Rugs
Make no-sew painted fabric rugs in any style and size to match your home decor.
Step 1: Watch the Video Tutorial Here!
Step 2: You'll Need (to Make Both Rugs)
1 yard printed fabric
2 yards heavy cotton canvas
Americana Multi Surface Paints in your favorite colors
E-6000 Stitchless Iron On Glue
1 yard fringe (optional)
Step 3: Prepare Your Canvas
Figure out the size you want to make your rug and add 1" all the way around
Cut your canvas to this size
Iron the edges in 1"
Add E-6000 Stitchless glue around the edges and iron the edges in place
Step 4: Create Your Design
Measure the center of each side of your canvas rug
Connect where you marked with painter's tape
Using the first taped diamond, measure in 3" to create a smaller diamond
Measure in again to create the center diamond
Add tape to all your drawn lines
Start filling in with your multi-surface paints
Step 5: Paint and Seal It!
Black in the center
Next red, followed by turquoise orange and finally green
Remove the tape when it's dry and coat the front and back of the rug with Minwax Polycrylic
Step 6: Let's Make a Printed Fabric Rug
Cut your printed fabric 1" bigger all the way around than you want your rug to measure
Cut a piece of canvas 1" smaller all the way around than your printed fabric
With the printed fabric centered on top of the canvas, seal them together with a layer of Minwax Polycrylic
Add more Minwax Polycrylic to the top after you've sealed them together
Step 7: Embellish and Seal It
Add E-6000 Fabri-Fuse to the 1" edges and iron them to the underside of the canvas
Create a 2" boarder 1/2" in from the edge of the rug all the way around using tape
Fill it in with a matching color
Glue fringe under the ends of the rug with E-6000 Fabri-Fuse and let dry
