Prodding - Binding a Square or Rectangle Rug

Guest Author - Christine Dux

Binding a square or rectangle fleece prodded rug is easy and should be done before prodding is started.

Allow two rows of holes along the outside of your rug for binding. Holes should be surrounded by mesh on all four sides. Cutting too close to the outside edge may cause the canvas to unravel. Once the hem has been trimmed, place a dot of white glue at each joint in the mesh along the outside edge to prevent the canvas from unraveling. Allow to dry.

For the Square rug:
Start by measuring the outside edge on one side of your rug.
Cut four strips of fleece, ½” longer than needed. Binding should be cut one inch wide.
Example: If each side is 36” long, cut four strips of fleece 1” wide X 36 ½” long.


For the Rectangle rug:
Start by measuring the outside edge on the top of the rug and the outside edge on the left side of your rug.
Cut two strips of fleece, ½” longer than the top and two strips of fleece, ½” longer than the sides. Binding should be cut to one inch wide.
Example: If you are making a 24”X36” rug, cut two strips of fleece 1” wide X 24 ½” long and two strips of fleece 1” wide by 36 ½” long.

Sewing the Binding:
Starting at the bottom of your rug, fold ½ of the strip over the front side of the canvas and ½ of the strip over the backside of the canvas. Each end of the strip should slightly overlap the corner of the canvas.
Using a sewing machine, sew the strip 3/8” from the outside edge using matching thread.
Sew a strip to the top of your rug, following the instructions above.
Trim the excess fleece at the corners so that it is even with the edge of the canvas.
Sew a strip on the left side of the rug, overlapping the binding at both the top and the bottom.
Sew a strip on the right side of the rug, overlapping the binding at both the top and the bottom.
Trim the excess fleece at the corners.
Once you have all of the binding sewn on, sew around the entire rug, one more time, 2/8” from the outside edge.
The “shag” of this rug, hides most of the binding.
