As mentioned in previous posts, there are various ways to bind a rug. Actually have blogged about most all styles with visuals if you wanted to type you are looking for in the search engine top left side of the blog. As there may be recent visitors or, hopefully subscribers, to my blog will show this one as it is in progress.
Newbies..... did you know cotton binding tape has a gathering thread along one edge? Yup. You can see the thread with a start of the pull. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to find the right thread and if not successful try the other end along the same more rigid edge.
