No Sew Fabric Joins

Guest Author - Christine Dux

These fabric joins will form a lump where the knot is formed and may show in your finished rug. The size of the lump will depend on the type and weight of the fabric. Before joining all of your fabric using one of these methods, try joining a few rings or strips of material and make a sample to see how the knots will look in the finished rug. No sew joins work best when using light weight fabrics.

No Sew Join #1

Take two strips of fabric and cut a slit about 1/2 from either end of each strip. Fold the edge of the fabric over, than cut the slit down the center of the fabric. The size of the slit should be just large enough to pull the second piece of fabric through.

Lay the first strip down face up.

Pull the second strip through the slit of the first strip. Pull just enough through to show the slit of the second strip.

Pull the left end of the second strip though the slit on the right end of the second strip

Continue pulling until a knot begins to form, making sure the right side of both strips of fabric is facing up. Give it a gentle tug (to avoid tearing the fabric) and your strip is joined!

This may not work the best for stiffer fabrics as it will be harder to pull the fabric through the hole. If your fabric is stiff, try washing and drying it first.






No Sew Join #2

This method creates a chain of fabric and is used to join materials such as skirts, bags and t-shirts which are cut from seam to seam.

Lay the first ring of material on a table.

Overlap the second ring on top of the first ring of material.

Pull the left end of the bottom ring up through the top ring, than pull the right end of the bottom ring through the left end of the bottom ring. (See picture below.)

Hold the left end of the top ring and the right end of the bottom ring and pull to form a knot, making sure that the right side of the material is facing out.
