Design Idea #1 - Koinobori Coloring Page as a Custom Rug

On May 5th Japan celebrates Kodomo no Hi, Children's Day. We join in by sharing this design idea for your own custom rug: a Koinobori coloring page turned irregular-shaped handknotted rug.

With added handwriting "You aer the best". Nothing better than the original child's handwriting (and spelling!)

Here we have mirrored the original image and added grass and sky, plus "Once upon a time..." embossed in 4mm lower pile. It reminds of an antique engraved book.

This is a great way to adapt a design you like to the size you need, for example this double length to place next to the bed.

Here are three variations. The original colours remain almost the same, although we have made them darker in one of them (can you tell which?). We want to show you the effect it creates to change the background colour and add one or more borders:
