I'll give you folks a break from rugs I've hooked and present two rug labels just sewn on. In previous posts have shown you how I do printed fabric labels with more than one label per sheet. Tap that highlighted link above to see the info.
But NOW...... instead of stitching on a thin cotton label onto the back of the rug I'm doing something different. Why didn't I think of this before?
I have machine stitched the cotton label onto a piece of felt and hand sewed the felt to the back of the rug. You can see this rug was bound using the wool whipped edge and the wool came from Ali Strebel. It is a nicely dyed wool complimenting the Magdalena Goat rug.
Another label sewed on today was for Olde Hearts. The photo of a rug on the label was one replicated of the original antique. Sadly my printer ink levels were low so the labels were not clear.
However, I like this new method of sewing the cotton printed label onto the felt first.
Now back to working on the bottom of the Gossip rug. Must admit that I'll be happy when this BIG MOMMA is done so that I can move on.
