This is the reverse side of the rug. So you're wondering what the big deal is, right? Well before I learned how to hook secret messages that were legible reading from the flipped rug, I learned how to do secret messages which were camouflaged and only the hooker knew it was there.
But that technique could also be used if you didn't want your initials and date to show up in front, but that info would be detected from the back. OR, you could just hook that information in the front using the same background wool.
For me it was just a fun experiment and something I thought I'd share with you.
