Jelly-Roll Rug Pattern by RJ Designs (available in the Museum gift shop)
14-18 size Jeans needle
Neutral thread to match or blend with all your fabric. Students may want to prefill several bobbins with matching thread. (These rugs take a lot of thread.)
Stylus or long tweezers
Assorted 2-1/2" x WOF fabric strips (see below for quantities).
2 1/2" batting strips. If you are cutting your own batting cut slightly narrower as a full 2 1/2" strip will need to be overlapped. This is a great way to use up your scrap batting. You can also purchase pre-cut batting rolls from the Museum gift shop. If you purchase the pre-cut rolls bring a large binding clip and a piece of string about 20" long to hang the roll on the edge of the table.
1 dozen small binding clips, or more.
Rotary cutter, small cutting mat, and scissors.
