Punchneedle Rug - Springtime Bunny - Shaved and Ready!


I didn't make you wait long, did I? Don't you have a desire just step on it with your mini bare feet? It feels so fluffy in touch...


It was really a fun working on this colorful Punchneedle rug "Spring Bunny". It took me a couple of hours during 3 days to finish it. Can't compare with petit point in miniature, however the scale that Punchneedle rugs in miniature come in is still under a question for me.

That is why I didn't apply any background on the back side of the rug.

The Springtime Bunny punchneedle rug is shaved and ready. It measures a little bit more than 2" x 3".


I shaved the rug. I like this technique, however I didn't take the pictures of the process.

I tried to make close-up pictures of the shaved pile...


Shaving doesn't damage the loops and the result is fabulous. With my next Punchneedle rug I will try another technique, but later about it...

I didn't finish the back side, but applied non-fraying solution. The reason is I am trying to be as close to the scale as possible and think that any application to the back side of the punchneedle rug makes it out of the scale. What do you think?


I also came up with my own design for my next punchneedle rug in 1/12th scale and it is ready to be transfered on the fabric, but later about it, for now just a sneak peak of a pattern...


Have a great weekend!

Wow, you said it in your previous post, Natalia, but the result is fabulous indeed. This is a fantastic rug :D! But with what tool have you shaved this rug?
I love the new pattern, it is gorgeous, so this will be a beautiful new rug. I can't wait to see the result ;)!
I wish you a lovely weekend!

Thank you, Ilona! For shaving I use a regular razor (I bought one just for this particular process). Hugs, Natalia

Thank you very much, Lisa! I agree, it is a fun rug! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Natalia

Natalia, lovely rug! By regular razor do you mean electric or manual please? I have thought about trying that.

Muy bonito Natalia. Tu nuevo diseño parece mas complicado. Seguro que queda muy bien.

Looks gorgeous... really a fun design and the appearance is like these self-crafted rugs or cushions in hooked technique. Your new design looks lovely, let's see which colours you are going to use.

Hugs

Thank you, Isabel!

Shelly, I used a manual razor, haven't tried an electrical yet, wondering if it can pull the loops out of the fabric, it is easy to control the manual razor, but who knows, worth to try. If you try an electrical one, share your experience, please. God luck and hugs, Natalia

Thank you, Birgit. I think I will use the same colors and add some new ones. Already started - gotta to try a new technique, :))) Hugs, Natalia

The finished rug is so bright and cheerful and it does look like you could sink your toes into it. I really like your new design too and look forward to seeing it when you have made it. I was going to ask how you shaved it but note the answers in the comments. I think I'd be a bit scared shaving it after putting all that work into it.
