As part of my learning curve in miniature Petitpoint, I decided that this rug needed a fringe. Not all rugs have fringes and it is often at the discretion of the maker to decide if they wish to add a fringe or not.
There is a wonderful tutorial on the website of a fellow Petitpointers@groups.io member and designer that I followed to create this fringe. It was easy to follow and my fringe turned out beautifully. Here is a link to the tutorial: petersonpetitpoint.com/index.php?main_page=document_general_info&cPath=10&products_id=129&zenid=b8d7522f81b57ccd4060d5c74de513e9
Here is the rug after the fringe was put on and it has been blocked. All rugs should be blocked once it is removed from the frame to help get it perfectly straight. As I look at the picture for this rug, I see that it isn't perfectly straight so I will block longer for my next rugs.
A wonderful tutorial regarding blocking a rug is also available at the same website mentioned above. Here is the link: petersonpetitpoint.com/index.php?main_page=document_general_info&cPath=10&products_id=128&zenid=b8d7522f81b57ccd4060d5c74de513e9
After blocking, I finished off the sides of the rug by using an overcast stitch over two threads. Below is a photo of the rug completed and in its place of honor in my dollhouse. Not bad for a first attempt!
The members of Petitpointers were very supportive of my learning attempts and were very happy to answer all of my questions. I am extremely grateful for their assistance.
My name is Yvette, and I will be writing this blog to tell you about the creative process that has gone into the creation of my Petitpoint patterns along with showing the stitching I have done of some of the rugs.
