Rug Hooking (Part 1)

Since I finished my rug clipping, I wanted to try something a little different. So I’m using the same 3′ x 5′ 3.75 mesh rug canvas, but I’m rug hooking instead.

I’m cutting 1/2 inch wide fabric strips and pulling them through the canvas using a crochet hook. (It’s like locker hooking, except without the locker part). When I pull the loops through, they’re about 1 1/2″ to 2″ long.

This technique is faster than rug clipping, and the rug looks softer. I’ll post more pictures as I get further along with it.
