Patchwork is a very exciting thing. Miraculously, original rugs, bedspreads and pillows are made from small pieces of fabric, possibly left over from other projects. This technique, among other things, allows you to complement the picture without being tied to a specific size. The result will be a blanket with a pattern resembling stars.
Choose fabric contrasting shades. For sewing, use threads that match the color of the light material. For every 10 pieces of light-colored fabric (20x20 cm) take 10 dark, and another 20 stripes (5 cm wide).
Put a light square on the dark, aligning the front side. Draw a line diagonally. Cut the squares and connect dark and light parts along this line.
These are the elements obtained in the end.
They will need to be cut into strips 5 cm wide.
Turn the strips away from you dark side for easy operation.
Connect the extreme elements into groups to sew them together. Then sew the resulting parts. So the elements will be harder to confuse.
Get a square with the desired pattern. All hem seams should be directed in one direction.
Sew a dark stripe to each of the elements from the side of the longest dark fragment.
An important feature: when sewing this part, the hem of the seam is directed in the opposite direction. This will not allow the rug to stretch.
Fold the four elements one-on-one, and then begin to "twist" the upper counterclockwise to form a pattern.
Sew the elements together. You can add any number by resizing to the right.
