DIY CHEVRON RUG Jessie // Sweet Thing July 8, 2010 Loving this DIY rug project from High-Heeled Foot In The Door. It looks so easy, inexpensive and fun! Who needs a Madeline Weinrib, when you can make your own?... Go HERE for full instructions. You will need 2 yrds of fabric, 6x9 drop-cloth, 5x8 rug gripper and Aleene's Tacky Spray Glue.
