As a hooker who hates binding rugs but loves the hooking process I've chosen to finish binding Horse Trainer as quick as possible ~ bite the bullet so to speak. Reason because there is yet another rug calling my name...in addition to my grandson's rug. Oh yeah.... a surprise and an antique adaptation.
Then after deciding a wool whipped edge it required a little more foundation to roll forward. Therefore after the heavy rug was hooked did additional stitching another 1/2" outward.
Am almost around the corner for the prep and tomorrow will start the wool whipping. That will be part two of this and I'll give you the formula for how much wool it takes to hook a rug.
Clover Wonder Clips and wonderful for holding the edge and you don't get stuck with straight pins. BUT, they aren't cheap and I used a 40% off coupon to purchase mine.
Have a great evening and hope my Canadian friends can open their front door tomorrow. KIM, hope you enjoyed the pizza and beer as you will need that energizer bunny to get your car cleaned in the morning.
