My latest project
Hi all, I have been busy with my latest project. A hooked rug. This is my fish or really my grandsons. He is my first attempt at designing. I was involved in a rug swap and I wanted it to be special and fun. I really enjoyed matching all the colors to go with him. I hope you enjoy him to. His name is Herbert.
This is the outline of my fish and the seweeds and coral. I also added a few air bubbles for movement. I like to think It worked.
This is my fish. I made him two toned. It was as close as I could get to the color of my real fish.
Here is my fish with some background hooked in along with some details done. My initials and the date.
Here I have pressed the front and back of my fish. You do this step after you have finished all the patteren and getting ready to whip. You wet a towel and press your rug, front and back, then you let it set overnight .
