I finished White Tiger Beauty last night and bound it today. I tried something different with the binding. I used wool strips 1 1/2 inches wide that I folded over the edge and bound off as normal. But after pressing the rug flat, I got the idea to frame it in, so I went back over the edge holding the steam iron about 1/4" above the wool. Then I rolled the wool in toward the rug. It created a 3D wool frame that looks neat.
