I wanted to show part of this little Autumn-Halloween Rug I’m designing for a pattern (I’ll show the completed sample in a day or two!!) : )…so I could let those new to hooking see how we can make our lettering stand out when doing a rug.
You can see that some of my lettering is almost disappearing into the background as I hook around the letters!! : ) A nice trick is to put the lettering in, hook background around the letters and then pull out the lettering and do it again so it stands up just a tiny bit above the background. It will look much better (if that is what you want!!) LOL When I post the picture of the completed sample rug, you’ll see what I’ve done with the lettering! (So this is the “before”!!) LOL
This pattern has been great fun to hook and has gone fast…I will have the sample completed in a week!! (While still working on my two big rugs!! ) It is approx. 19 x 24 inches and has one of my favourite scrappy borders!
I’ll post Helen’s Tapestry later! : )
Happy Hooking! : )
