With the eyes changed and potential customer approved it was time for binding.
I don't have a favorite binding style as each piece determines what is needed.  This one had a potential buyer who wanted to hang it on his wall so decided to do a wide double layer of cotton with the same color sleeve to insert a dowel.
As previously mentioned on other blog posts, this is a delightful design by Kelley Belfast.

Today, also printed a sheet of labels for a couple rugs recently hooked, for Cat Nap, the Magdalena I'm working on AND...... the next two rugs.  Those two  would be patterns to hook at Cape May and camp in November.  So guess I'm definitely committed to those two patterns for SURE!

Had to use up the whole sheet and it was the last sheet of printable fabric left.  Now must find a new resource because my local Walmart does NOT sell anything like that. 

IF you folks new to hooking or new to my blog you may want to visit HERE to see the other ways I've bound rugs.

Hope your next week is a happy one with good weather.

  7. You really are on the ball with your labels. Do you have a Michaels nearby? I buy my printable fabric from them. Be sure to have a 40% coupon!

  8. Ha ha....It would probably take me the rest of my life to use an entire sheet for labels. ;-). I’m gonna miss your kitty rug...I bet the buyer will be tickled pink. ~Robin~
