a rug completed

  • Posted on June 14, 2015 at 9:27 pm

i chose to complete the rug by trimming the edge back to about 5 rows past the stitching line, cutting a wedge out of the corner to cut down the bulk, then folding it back and satin stitching around the edge with a very narrow stitch in the pink.. after that i used a loose whip stitch and stitched the edging down flat to the back, catching only a stitch or two at a time so it wouldn’t show through on the front. now it looks just like the full sized rugs i have in my house, and the little girls are thrilled. crystal is showing it off here
The finished rug
after i was done someone pointed me to a great tutorial on how to finish rugs, so rather than re-inventing the wheel, i’ll just link to it here
