Marker Pen for transferring your design
Fabric - your choice of stretch fabric and color
This particular rug is made with T-shirting scraps - the emphasis being on the stretchability of the material - the results are beautiful. If you wish to make a more complicated design, sketch it out on paper first, scaling your sketch to the dimensions of your canvas.

There are so many great books on the subject of carpet making, and dozens of different methods of creating a carpets - You can knit them, weave them, or braid them. There are also hooked rugs and painted rugs. Some are made in small sections and joined together, others start small and just get larger and larger as you go along. There is a method to suit every material and every temperament. This is a highly creative and satisfying hobby. In creating a rug, you could stay with a traditional design - say Turkish or Chinese - or you could make your own pattern, or even recreate a favorite photograph.
I have collected below a selection of books on practical rug making - as many as I could find - enjoy!
