Book Description

1 Aug 1996
A traditional 19th-century craft, hooking rag rugs has come a long way since its humble cottage beginnings. There is still the option of making the familiar "rag" rug recycling strips of discarded clothing, but now there is also the wealth of creative potential found in hooking pictorial rugs and wall-hangings, choosing fabrics in the colours required. Flowers, birds, butterflies, geometric patters - a wide array of possibilities. This guide gives full instructions, from choosing a design and transferring it to hessian backing to a step-by-step photographic series showing "how to hook", plus guidance on cleaning, care and repair of rugs. Over 30 colour photographs, of hooked rugs, wall-hangings, cushions and seat covers in varied styles, outline designs to enlarge and use to get started.
