You could put a bit of a pattern to offset it, like a partial border? Or just something that your friend likes. I guess you could do a flower for the sake of irony.
Hmm, it really looks intentional?
i guess it's because it was the first pattern I ever charted myself & I've been staring at it for so long that I just knew how it was supposed
to look, you know? I fall into that trap a lot!
I've been debating adding a full border but haven't found anything that really pops out at me yet. I still have time til xmas, so it still may appear if I finish my other gifts.
Thanks for your input! Now I'm torn! =] haha
