What can be made from the remnants of thread.

The idea for handicrafts lovers. A pillow or rug in carpet technology or what to make from the remnants of thread. Often after knitting there are unused threads, if they have accumulated a lot, then you can tie a new thing, for example, a plaid of motifs of different colors, but if not so much you can make such a pillow or rug.

For work we need threads only 6 - 10 cm long. That is, we can use all the smallest residues. These are the ones that will remain after we impose things.

We need a canvas or burlap. In principle, any sparse texture. In our case, fit the burlap.

We also need sharp scissors, a hook, a pencil or a marker, a ruler and a piece of cardboard.

First we put a pattern on the fabric.

Some useful tips:

  1. Draw on the fabric boldly - everything will overlap with threads. It is better to draw now than to think for a long time where the line goes. But do not use color markers when washing, especially if you are working with light threads.
  2. Do not make very fine lines.At least 2 loops. Otherwise it will not be so. And two loops are nearby, as you will see later - this is already quite a lot.
  3. If the drawing is not very simple and there are a lot of colors, then in order not to get confused later, sign the colors, and even better make a bundle of the desired color, then you will certainly not be confused.

Well, here we have a drawing, now we have threads. Advice - do not take pure wool. When using it, it falls down. In the colored cushion, my bright green (100% wool) thread in the places of greatest friction was a little tangled. The rest of the thread stand perfectly.
On the cardboard we need the width (this is the width of the estimated pile + distance for the node - this is determined simply by fitting) we wind the threads. Short threads are not very convenient in work, and very long then in the finished product may lie untidy.

Tip - let the thread when winding lays down only next to. Do not create "bagels". Otherwise, the threads will be of different lengths and this can be noticeable.

Now we cut the thread from one side

We have got such neat pieces

At this preparatory stage is over. You can begin to "fur" work. Crochet we pierce the fabric we pick up the thread on the base.

Grab the harvested thread in the middle

And stretch through the fabric. We got such a pretty eyelet, threaded through the base fabric

Now we catch the remaining tails of the thread and stretch it through the loop.

It is important - the knot is not tightened sure to align the ends. The resulting nodule tighten

That is the beginning of the pillow - the first finished loop.

Next, we similarly bind the second

And so gradually we fill in the marked part of the picture.

When everything is full, you can turn the work and shake. Here is what “fur” turned out

This technique is perfect if you need to get rid of pieces of thread. So here we have these threads.

We reel them on cardboard, and for convenience we take just a few.

It is necessary to iron this hatch. Or if the threads are very wrinkled-compressed, then wrap with a wet cloth and iron. This is how the threads look after ironing and cutting. It is important - immediately throw away "unconditioned" (short pieces), so that later they do not fall into the product

Since the threads are much thinner than the previous ones, we take not only one thread, but bundles.

Well, we got a piece in a different color. If suddenly a bundle is higher, then at the end of the work we carefully trim it.

Here is a 2-color piece.
