Prodding a Design

"[Your] dream will challenge, prod and haunt you until you surrender to its call."
— Wayne Cordeiro

The newest class at A Work of Art Studio is a T-Shirt Prodded Rag Rug, which was taught by Julie Sullivan @www.Rewovendesigns.etsy.com!  This is a pretty easy and very fun craft to learn. This is  a "Prodder", which is used to "prod" a hole into burlap where you then push a strip of cut up t-shirt or fleece, first one end and then the other. You end up with both pieces of the strip on one side of the burlap, making the rag rug, the other side is a flat design.

 Staple burlap to frame after drawing design.
Grab your old t-shirts and cut all the seams out, leaving only smooth fabric to cut for strips.
