Measure and Mark for Stripes

Create your workspace. Cover the surface of a flat, level, well-ventilated outdoor area with craft paper. Unfurl the indoor-outdoor area rug along the protected area. Use a measuring tape to decide on the width of the stripes, making sure they are proportionately in check with the shape, scale and size of the rug. Stripes with 8- to 12-inch widths work best with most rug sizes. When the proper size is determined, mark stripe placement with a magic marker.
