This center picture is some white wool that I tray-dyed. I put the wet wool into a 13 X 9 granite ware pan and poured hot liquid dye over it. I used Cushings tan, dark brown and old gold. It turned out pretty much as I wanted it to (maybe a tad darker), so now we'll see if it looks as I pictured in my mind in the finished rug! Dyeing wool is both challenging and rewarding.
Here is the design! I drew this on linen (instead of on dot transfer fabric), so I have a few crossed out areas (my bad!). It may still change here or there before I complete it, but this is the basic idea. Hopefully I will be able to show the progress in pictures over the next couple of months.
Hope you are having a great week!
