Welcome friends...wanted to share with you my latest pillow...
I know lately I've been on the pillow kick...but can you really have too many pillows?
I had seen these rug hooked pillows in many high end stores and they were very pricey and I
knew with my rug hooking skills that I could hook one just like that or even better
design one for myself.
So last fall I did just that .
On Natural Linen I drew out my pumpkin pattern with a sharpie pen.
Then I pulled out all my supplies.
I use nothing but 100% wool that I have washed and felted then I cut into strips using my Frazer cutter. Once cut they look like strings.
I went with oranges, browns, creams, whites, greens, golds, reds .
I started hooking this pillow last fall.
Then like most times, I stop give my hands a rest and go onto another project.
I had forgotten that I had even started this pillow till one day my DIL asked
me to show her how to rug hook.
When I went to my basket of supplies I came across this pillow that I had started....
Ok Linda, it's time to get back at this and finish before this fall season starts.
Sometimes I use a hoop (like above pic) but most time I hook off a lap frame similar to this.
Once it's hooked I spray it with water and then with a cloth I iron it flat.
This one is 16"x 16" and I backed it with a burlap to give it a country feel.
Knowing that I have designed and hooked this pillow it's worth tenfold .
It's definitely ONE OF A KIND!
