That linen rug pattern that I was hooking on a few weeks ago did not belong to me. It was The Mister's. I priced one of my own but-ouch, they are expensive. I can draw a bit so I thought that I might buy some blank burlap and come up with my own design. It couldn't be that hard. Right?
Wrong. This is as far as I got. Maybe I better start with something small. Very small. If you want to see what has inspired and terrified me at the same time look here.
I dare you.
They're beautiful! But what a commitment! Looks like it would take quite a while to finish one. Very cool though. Can't wait to see what design you come up with.ReplyDelete
Hi , rug hooking with wool or fabric? The site that you linked to had some amazing work on it ! One of my wheels has a hooked rug to sit on as we had to look at various rug making methods whilst studying creative embroidery.ReplyDelete
It's wool I'll be using when I get the courage to start!Delete
just jump in there you can draw on graph paper and get out the big box of crayolas.....badabing badaboom....start hooking. Love the rugs on that site.ReplyDelete
I used fabric, old cotton cot blankets picked up at a local flea market then dyed and worked into hessien, great fun and produced a heavy rug which will hopefully last for years, somehow don't think I would have the patience for wool :-)ReplyDelete
I should have said wool fabric. I am such a newbie that until I saw a video on You Tube of someone doing this with roving just now, I had no idea it could be done. You are right about patience. There would be no way I would be doing that!Delete
