Rug Hooking Kits
This simple craft is easy to learn, relaxing, and allows for plenty of creativity! Using a crochet-hook type tool, poke through the burlap-like backing and pull up a little loop of yarn. Remove the hook and repeat! It's very simple and methodical, yet creates an impressive finished product! Kits let beginners start rug hooking on a small scale while completing a 5" x 7" rug. Just about everything you need to complete the project is included, from the foundation material with the design printed on it, to the wooden frame, hook, and wool yarns (you only need to provide scissors and a few thumbtacks). Detailed instructions provide illustrated examples to help beginners get started. Plenty of tips, advice, instructions for, and historical information on rug hooking are included. The hook and wooden frame will last for many more projects - all you need is more foundation material, yarn, or any other fabric you want to try. Completed "rugs" can be used as doll rugs, wall hangings, or pillow fronts, and the technique can be applied to larger frames for larger rugs. A true learning experience rather than a "one and done" kit.
