It's Never Too Late....
Well It's never too late to learn a valuable lesson and believe you me I've learned one. I should never ever let things pile up....so from now on I'll be whipping those rugs as I get them done. Well I've finished up 6 in the massive pile....but one is a challenge rug so it can't be shown just yet. I even hung them up here and there in the house. The lil' welcome mat is hanging in the guest/toy room. The dolls were made by my dear friend Betty.
This basket of flowers I hooked back last May and just finished up the binding. I think this is where it all started....should have bound it when I got it done!
This was a challenge rug from last fall. I bound this one with wool.
The bossy behind I tried whipping the edges with wool strips and it went really fast. Looks pretty good on the old milk stool.
This basket of flowers I hooked about a week ago and I also whipped the edges with wool strips and it's hanging on the wall.
I thought at first I had about 23 to finish but after cleaning I found a few stray mats that needed the binding also so guess I'll just keep plugging away.
So what's your favorite way to bind a rug? Thought I would try a variety of ways to see what I like best.
