coiled rope door mat

Living in Oregon a door mat it an essential item. While the winter months require something heavy duty, in the summer I like having fun dressing up our front porch with a decorative mat. Since I have been working with rope for a couple of years, I knew that a coiled rope rug would be an easy project and a fun way to add a little embellishment to the front porch.
I start with cotton clothesline rope. You can use just about any kind of rope but I really like the clothesline rope because it's easy to work with and doesn't fray. 

I love painting the rope- I used a spray bottle filled with acrylic paint and water to add a little contrast to my rope.

To begin, coil the rope into a circle. 

Using a sewing machine, zig zag stitch the coil together and keep coiling and stitching. 

FYI- I spend lots of time sewing heavy duty and non-traditional materials on my machine- I typically use a denim needle for these kinds of projects.

Continue coiling and sewing until you have created a circle.

I created lots of coiled circles in different sizes.

Next, I arranged my coiled circles so that their sides were touching and then I began to sew them together.

I kept adding circles and sewing until I created an abstract door mat.


Looking for more rope projects?

I've had on my project list to try something with coiled rope since your very first post on it. I haven't seen something that truly grabbed me - until this. I LOVE it!

So cool, but since I'm also an Oregon native and currently live in a crazy-red-soil-that-stains-everything home... what would you recommend for washing? = )

If I have time (and I probably won't, so I'm sharing the idea for your little girl) I'd love to sew my daughter a line of these beautiful rope circles as "stepping stones" for an imaginary river or creek. Then, of course, there's indoor hopscotch (traditional or freeform), and the ideas just keep going from there! Great ideas for indoor winter games. Thanks so much for sharing your methods & art :-)
