Got fabric scraps or some extra time? Why not create a Locker Hooking Rug using scrap strips (¾ to 1 inch wide) of fabric. Or if you are feeling industrious, cut strips from fabric you choose. You can make a rag-type rug or get creative with design and color. This course will provide you the basics for getting started – cutting and preparing the canvas, whipping the edges and getting started with the Locker Hook, along with tips of connecting fabric strips and finishing your rug. We will also discuss creating a design.
- Locker Hooking Rug Canvas: 3.75 Mesh (The package is 44” x 60”)
- Locker Hook
- 100% cotton Locker Hooking Twine, cotton twine or good quality yarn.
- Small pair of scissors for fabric. A pair of kitchen shears or utility scissors will be used to cut the canvas to the desired size.
- Tapestry needle – size 16
- I recommend Bias Tape for whipping, good yarn or fabric strips between 1/4 and 1/2 inch wide.
- Lots of cotton fabric strips – ¾ to 1 inch wide in various colors or colors of your choice for a specific design.
- I also recommend a lint roller.
-Fabric- PLEASE HAVE IT PRE-CUT in 3/4"-1" inch strips….you will need approx. 450- 600 inches to start with. (see shop sample).
