How to Make a Faux-Foliage Rug

Photo: Sloan Howard

You can walk barefoot on suede leaves with this fun home accessory. First, cut leaf shapes from faux suede Ultrasuede for the luxe version, or doe suede for an economical version. Then sew the leaves on a canvas backing for a nature-inspired throw rug. This project is quick to sew, but cutting the leaves does take some time. But the results are worth it; this rug is luxurious under foot and handsome enough to hang on a wall. To speed the cutting process, you could use simple fabric strips or squares instead of leaf shapes.

Make it in your favorite autumnal color scheme or in spring greens. Just choose natural colors from your favorite season for a spectacular rug. Judith Neukam shows you how in an article from Quick Stuff to Sew Vol. 3.
