I'll start this thread off with a pic of a 'rug' from another post that I made in the gallery forum -
Rug Challenge! (http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=13215)

If you have any rug or blanket designs to add - feel free to add your designs here.

Lovely rugs you have made!
Interesting thread that I think folks will latch on to soon.

While I must admit I have yet to get my thread together and the project deadline is looming... :)
I at least thought you might enjoy this site:


might inspire some other dyed in the wool artists out there too. :)

I associate to the praises! They're all great from both the geometric chromatism and for the textures! :)

Thank you rain for your comments and for adding your beautiful satin blanket and quilt. How did you get the satin-like effect? Did you use the tube and pallette-knife perhaps? Or sewing-machine/ needle and thread?

05-26-2008, 02:17 AM
LOL I used only the tube and knife and of course the rulers...I thought I had used a leather texture but if I did I must have changed it back to regular paper at 50% roughness and 50% scale. The tube was 100% at 68% pressure. Thank you for the nice comment:)

You are welcome. Now you mention it, yes it does look like leather too..

Here's one just for the fun of it - the blanket looked more like a towel though and needed something else to make it more interesting...
The ball, balloons and text were added using the PhotoImpact XL programme.

That looks wonderful! Your towel looks really great!

Here is a quick one I did:) Maybe I should have made the foot blue...oh well lol

Here is a teddy bear blanket:) Painted the bear and then made a stencil of it and used it on the blanket I made...I think my origianl bear would look better then using the stencil now that I think about it more.

Deaf Rain11, considering Your capabilities with carpets You must have ancestors coming from Middle East! :)
