The Toothbrush Rug is made using strips of fabric and a toothbrush, which has had the bristles removed and the point made smooth. It is a relaxing and portable project to work on, much like knitting or crocheting. During the three-hour class, you will get a good start on your rug, but will not finish it.
The best fabric for this is woven cotton, in a light to medium weight. Batiks are good if you’d like a smooth, non-frayed look. My advice on colour is to choose a selection of fabrics that you like. You can then decide to work them in a pattern or randomly. When making your strips, cut the fabric with scissors or a rotary cutter. Tearing the fabric makes it much harder to work with.
Approximately 1 metre of assorted fabrics, cut into 1” strips x the width of the fabric, usually 44”. You may use strips shorter than 44” but will be constantly stopping to make joins.
