Well here we go with the progress on Day 4…!
I had this much finished when I took this first photo…but I got carried away and did more work on the background and on the lower border for the second progress photo!!! I was just having too much fun!
Below is the picture of the overdyed streaky plaid that I used for the section beneath the feet of the character.
Here is my start on the bottom border…I just wanted to see what my border idea would look like!!!!!
Underneath that streaky brown, I’ve used a burgundy #5 cut line…then I’ve used a green/orange plaid, a purple texture, a yellow hand dyed, a gold and red plaid with a green plaid, an orange hand dyed, a rust coloured hand-dyed and finished with 2 rows of #8 cut burgundy plaid!!! Whew!!!!! I like it, I like it…and it sets off the center section in the way that I want.
I’ll finish the bottom border for the next post. On this rug, I’m working from the bottom up and from the left side to the right side.
By the way, the rug is approx. 22 x 30…and I’ve added 1/2 inch to all sides for a frame. (hooked in that #8 cut)
(When I print the pattern, the pattern center and borders will be full sized but I ask that you add the 1/2 inch to all sides so that is perfectly on the straight of grain of your backing.)
I am still working on them and hoping to offer patterns by the end of July…working on Halloween and Christmas designs first and then adding the others. I’ll post info here and on my website…www.sunnieandressdesigns.com
Happy Hooking! Sunnie :)
