From Sweden to Morocco

Materials: Erslev rug in light green


  1. I created a stencil by tracing a Moroccan tile shape onto a piece of card stock and cutting out the negative space with an Exacto knife.
  2. I placed the stencil on the rug starting in the top left corner.
  3. I used a washable white fabric paint and a stippling brush to fill in the stencil.
  4. I repeated steps 2 and 3 working my way from left to right all the way down the rug until the design was completed.
  5. Painting freehand, I filled in the unfinished spots left by the “bridges” of the stencil.
