Whimsical Designs for Rug Hooking
Balloon Flower II
This is a version of Balloon Flower, made a bit smaller and with a border added. This is one design I really love that has such great possibilities. The flower can be hooked with a Dip Dye, or give that appearance by choosing 3 analogous colors, one dark, one medium and one light value and finger them together. Then pull your motif colors out to the border.
