The above photo shows the mitered corner and section already stitched down. I did a running stitch 3 rows up from the bottom to catch the foundation to the cotton binding. And then stitched the top which is turned over at the edge of the foundation.
Above shows the width of the foundation and the parts which have already been stitched down. Before that top strip is stitched down it will have a sleeve sewn on in order to slide a dowel or yard stick thru for the rug to be hung on the wall. Or, if used as a rug that can be pulled out. Will show final finish one of these days soon.
The thread used for stitching is a very strong silamide thread purchased from Kris Miller of Spruce Ridge Studios. It comes in different colors.
My son's Man Cave rug was bound using denim so it is possible to use a cotton fabric for binding a rug too.
Have a good evening. Presently it is pleasant here with low humidity, nice breeze and think the A/C can be turned off tonight. The weekend, however, will change.
