Dorm Decor on Etsy!

Today on Etsy’s blog is a project from my book Dorm Decor. Check out the tutorial from this week’s How-Tuesday to see how to make a no-sew, cut-out zebra rug.

From Michelle at Etsy:

College living is an extreme in decorating challenges: limited space, limited funds, and limited time. In my years of undergraduate life, I tried wall tapestries, fabric flowers, ceramic tchotchkes, vintage hat mannequins, tie dye, crocheted afghans, mason jars, and more collaging than I care to remember. In an effort to compensate for the cheap generic furniture and beer-stained carpet, I saturated my dorm rooms with a technicolor blur of clutter.

I wish I had found Theresa Gonzalez and Nicole Smith’s book, Dorm Decor, back when I was still enrolled, because I was in desperate need of some creative focus. This week’s How-Tuesday project is for all of those crafty co-eds settling into their drafty, fluorescent-lit dorm rooms. There is hope! This Felt Rug requires no sewing skills and seems like the perfect project for orientation bonding.
