Rug is made with a jelly roll and 2 ½ inch batting strips formed a large circle. Requires a sewing machine with a zig-zag stitch and matching or coordinating thread. As the rug uses a lot of thread 2 spools of thread and winding 4 bobbins prior to class is recommended. Basic sewing skills needed. Bring a small box/basket large enough to hold a basketball. You will be making a long thick strip & rolling it into a ball. This will help to contain it.
