Fluffy miracle, or plaid of pom-poms
In the house of each needlewoman must be keptbox, or even one, in which all kinds of glomeruli and hanks of old threads wait patiently. It seems that you can not connect anything from them, and you still do not feel like throwing it away! We propose to use the leftovers and turn them into a plaid plaid from pompoms!
How many threads do you need?
Everything depends on the expected size of the rug. On an average version measuring 140 by 80 centimeters you will need about one kilogram of yarn. But this is a very rough estimate. Much depends on the quality of the threads, on their thickness and, consequently, on the distance of each skein. The technology of making a rug is very specific, so the main emphasis is on the length of the thread, and not on the weight of the yarn.
Of no little importance is for what purposesthis product is intended. If for adults, then any yarn will do. But if a plaid of pompoms is made for a gift to a child, it is better to use acrylic. It does not cause allergies and is very light, besides it is easily erased. Many will argue that it is easier to buy a fleece blanket. Of course, it's easier! But after all we do not set a task simply to buy a rug. We want to make it with our own hands, and even with minimal costs.
How to make a plaid of pompoms with your own hands? The procedure is quite laborious and will require perseverance. First you need to find a frame. If you conceived a product of a large size, you should knock down the frame of the desired size. It should be somewhat larger than the finished product. Then determine what pom-poms you will do. If small, then on the perimeter of the frame you need to fill nails with a distance of 2 cm, and if larger, then 4 or 5. These nails need to pull the warp threads. They can be white or dark. The main thing is that they differ from the color of the pompoms. The warp threads are stretched so that a grid is formed on the frame. Each grid cell on one side must be formed by 20 or 25 threads. Then, yarns of colored yarn are pulled in the same way. They must be at least 50 on each side of the cell.
Tightly pulling all the threads, very carefully andneatly, tightly tighten and tie knots in the corners of the cell. This will be the middle of the pompoms. Therefore, if you tie it loosely, when using a rug, the threads just get out, the pompons will look untidy. In the middle of the side of each cell, we cut the yarns of colored yarn without touching the warp threads. We get the grid from the base, on which the fluffy lumps are uniformly located. Well, that's all, a plaid of pompoms is ready! It's not as difficult as it seemed, is it?
Carpet of pompoms
It can be done according to the technology described above. He will need thicker threads. Quality and color depend on your preferences. However, if you are planning such a rug in the bathroom, then it should absorb water well and dry quickly. And for a corridor or a bedroom, a woolen warm and fluffy specimen will do. When manufacturing, nail the nails much further, for example, with an interval of at least 8 or even 10 centimeters.
