How to Make a DIY Rope Trivet
Sewing a Rope Trivet
Are you ready for a little something different to change things up a bit? I didn’t realize that I was until I saw this ZigZag Rope Sewing Projects book in the Art Gallery Fabric blog. Most quilters have multiple creative outlets for a change of pace. Quilting is my passion, but I love all kinds of sewing. Especially interesting and different projects using scrap fabrics. Raw edge applique is a particular favorite. Sewing useful items always catches my attention. Check this project out in the video below.
Add Sewing a Rope Trivet with Scrap Fabric to your ‘must do’ list! You’ll love these fast & easy DIY Rope Trivet sewing projects for yourself. I subscribe to Art Gallery Fabric and enjoy their emails with fabric collections and lookbooks filled with ideas.
There was a beautiful rope bowl in one of their recent emails that totally caught my attention. Check out the book’s cover picture and see what I’m talking about. The pattern is in the book linked in this post which includes lots of other patterns, too. After reading the article and devouring all the photos I knew I had to learn how to do this. Who knew it’d be so easy?!
I found the book on Amazon and bought the kindle version so I could get started right away. Then I bought 70 yards of rope and was making trivets like crazy! The process is simple, but it was the addition of fabric scraps that really sold me on this. All the fun decorative bags, bowls, baskets, trivets, coasters will make your head spin! In a good way. LOL

The Art Gallery Fabric site is worth a visit if you haven’t already checked them out. They have lots of free quilting patterns to download. There are also free sewing patterns to download. Plus I saw some great pillow ideas to try. They don’t sell fabrics on their site, but you can find their fabric at the Fat Quarter Shop.
While there are lots of quilts on my calendar, there will be some more time for these rope projects, too. The next will probably be the bowls! Have fun & Happy Quilting!
