The edging around my wall hanging were not as neat as I would have liked,since it was cut from a towel, so I crocheted several yards of a chain from some type of green jute string,which I had found a bolt of, at a local consignment store.It was the perfect color.I glued it around the border until it was completely filled in to my satisfaction. Then I used a single strand of the jute string to go around the rest of the raw green edges. I may edge the 2 small pieces of melon with red thread to neaten them up a bit, later. I think it really made the picture look much neater with the edges trimmed that way. I kinda felt like an artist, touching up his painting, as I kept tweaking my project. It was a very calming and satisfying feeling, trying to get the project just so so. I want to say perfect, but that would be impossible to achieve, but I am so happy with the finished product.
