Hi all i am building my daughter a popping rod for her birthday and will do the butt wrap as a chevron rainbow. What weave would look good with that butt wrap.
Thanks
Paul

Her name is my first choice. Or maybe a small boat like the one the Clemens book with a multi-color sail?

How old is your daughter?
There is a fairy weave in the contest section.
Or you could really suck up to Sandy and she may send you the baby dragon pattern.
The cool thing about a rainbow theme is that you can take a single layer weave and use all the colors of the rainbow in a fade effect.
So a name for instance can start out yellow on top and fade through green, blue red etc on the way down.

Those cartoons she watches on Saturday mornings (while you're trying to sleep) should give you some ideas.  Isn't there a kids show staring a rainbow colored horse? Rainbow Bright?

You could always do something like this.
Most of it is done by the auto-paint function, so still al LOT of tidying before you could do a weave.
78 x 165 threads (To get the required detail) so it'd be best as a split grip weave.  9 layers, but it shouldn't be that hard a weave, although it would take time .... could end up a wedding present Wink

Mayber a rainbow fade cross wrap on the foregrip?

Send me an email if you want the pattern.



Note: Image rotated for clarity.  Pattern would run along blank.

You could go with something like Owens' doll above and inscribe it with "you're still daddy's little girl"
