DIY: How to Make a Felt Zebra Rug

Pin It

This has got to be the BEST tutorial EVER!

A quick search on Google for a zebra rug similar to this one will quickly render some VERY high-priced items. But have no fear, you can now make one for yourself with this tutorial I found and there’s even a pattern to download!

What you’ll need:
Zebra rug template
2 yards (72″ wide) gray felt {color on side A}
2 yards (72″ wide) orange felt {color on side B}
4 yards (72″ wide) cream felt
6′ x 2′ piece of 2″ grid pattern paper
Carbon paper and tracing wheel
Fabric Glue

In a nutshell, all you need to do is: make the pattern, cut out the pieces and assemble the rug.

How easy is that?
