With your own hands

Spring workshop for parents and children

Today we have prepared a special lesson for youdecorating from the art director of the popular television program "Fazenda". The charm of this fascinating master class is also in the fact that adults and children can be connected to the creative process. If you are a creative person and periodically engaged in needlework, then in your boxes there will certainly be scraps of cloth, threads, ropes. All these remnants of materials can also be used sensibly. How exactly - we were told and shown by Ekaterina Savkina, a professional designer and art director of the popular Fazenda TV program. Ekaterina Savkina, designer Graduated from the school of design "Details". Supervises the design bureau Designdirection and is the art director of the Fazenda TV program. A special direction in Catherine's creative activity is the holding of master classes for children and adults. So, if you decide to dress up your interior by spring with your own resources and without extra costs, then this master class will interest you. After all, in order to make here such charming decorative rugs-supports from improvised materials, it will be enough for you to allocate half an hour of time. We recommend to involve the younger members of the family in the creative process, so there is work for them too. About what other decorative accessories can be made with children, read. For work you will need:

  • remnants of yarn,
  • trimming of thick rope (harness),
  • fragments of tissue,
  • needle,
  • thread,
  • device for making pompoms (can be purchased at the stores "All for Needlework".

Depending on how many remnants of materials are at your disposal, you can make one or more rug mats.

Step one

We turn the rope into a snail. If you use a long piece of harness, your snail will turn out big, if short - small. This will be the basis of our rug. So that she does not unwind, we fix her with a paint tape.

Step Two

Straight through the tape fix the base of the rope. You can sew with your hands or with a sewing machine. You need to make at least four stitches passing through the center.

Step Three

We take a cut of fabric and cut out a fragment along the diameter of the disk, not forgetting the allowances for seams. Now gently sew a lining fabric to the base with a seam "over the edge".

Step Four

If you have small assistants, then the fourththe stage of the master class can be combined with the first three. That is, while you are preparing the basis for rugs, children can make decorative pompons from the remainders of the yarn. This process will be much easier and more fun if you use a special device for making pompoms, which is sold along with the instruction. About how to make pompoms without additional tools, we have already told in one of our previous.

Step Five

Place ready-made pompoms on a rope circle andsew them. In the same way, make the rest of the circles. They can be completely different in size, quantity and volume of pompoms. The main thing is, stick to a certain color scheme. Ready-made floor mats can be used individually or in the form of a single decorative composition (sewing them together). Your product is ready. But what is most interesting, you can always increase and increase it, up to the size of the carpet, as soon as you will again have leftovers of ropes, yarn and free time.
