This listing is for a complete rug hooking kit based upon an original design by Sharon Perry. It comes with the following:
wool fabric strips cut in #8 (1/4") a color photo of the finished piece pattern drawn on a lovely cotton monks cloth sealed at the edges to prevent fraying easy to follow rug hooking instructions binding to finish it off once you have it hooked
The only other items you will need are a rug hook and a frame to put your piece in. I started off with a quilting hoop and did several rugs on that before spending more money and getting a floor frame. I think you need to determine whether you like a hobby before spending a ton of money on it. As for the hooks I have always used the Moshimer hook that I have listed for $12.25 and I am offering the option to add this to your kit for the low price of $9.00 when you check out. This kit is suitable for the beginner or seasoned rug hooker.
This kit when completed measures 9 X 17 inches and would make a great wall hanging, table centerpiece, chair pad, or primitive pillow top. The small starfish are hooked with a soft gray windowpane plaid and the larger one with and oatmeal/gold tiny plaid and heather brown. The background is done with a beautiful mixed teals and greens ombre stripe from Dorr mill. For a finishing touch I added a two of deep dark olive green around the edge of the piece. Any questions please email me and thanks for taking the time to look at my item. If you'd like to see how easy this craft is to do just google Primitive Rug Hooking. There are several video demonstrations on U tube. FOR MORE GREAT DESIGNS AND SUPPLIES YOU CAN ALSO VISIT MY DAUGHTER'S SHOP AT www.etsy.com/shop/loopbyloopstudio
