Hooray! Finally can start daily posts of my new “Mystery Rug”!! : )
Unlike my two previous “Daily Post” rugs, this is a rug of my own design. I have used the Creative Cutting method of designing this rug which is when you take a few sheets of scrap or copier paper, cut out shapes at random and arrange those shapes on a rug backing. I usually cut about 10-12 shapes.
As you move the shapes around, a rug design idea emerges. It is similar to looking at cloud shapes and seeing what they look like!!! : ) You can use some of your shapes, delete some and add others. When you have arranged them to suit yourself…draw around them as you would templates and then start hooking! LOL
I am not going to show you the whole rug as I go along but only the parts I am hooking on! The completed rug will be shown at the end!!! LOL
The only hint is that I was looking at some antique draperies before I started cutting!!!
HERE WE GO!!! DAY 1
*** Oh yes, if you use the Creative Cutting method to design a rug, please send me a picture!! I’d love to see what you are up to! Happy Hooking!! Sunnie : )
