Hooking Mats and Rugs: 33 New Designs From An Old Tradition


Hooking Mats and Rugs: 33 New Designs From An Old Tradition



This book features original designs and motifs, inspired by the long traditions of the craft
Canadian rug hooker Deanne Fitzpatrick presents a collection of colorful, whimsical designs for welcome mats, area rugs, chair pads, and other decorative household items. Inspired by the seascape, the people, and the long rug-making traditions of the communities of the Atlantic coast, Deanne has adapted some of her favorite motifs to create practical, pictorial hooked canvases-Kissing Fish welcome mat, Old Rose oval rug, Coastal House chair pads, Dancing Women rug, and more.
She provides the basic hooking instructions and tips on choosing the right backing (burlap or linen), gathering fabric (silks, wools, velvets-or just about anything else you can cut into strips), and binding the edges. She also provides templates for each of the 33 projects and instructions on transferring and positioning the motifs. Scattered throughout the book are inspiring photographs of Fitzpatrick's many award-winning rugs, her stories of traditions that inspire her work, and insider's tips for shortcuts and techniques. The whimsical, folk-art-style designs range from simple to more complex and will appeal both to beginners and experienced rug hookers. The technique is simple, and the materials are few and easy to find.

the handle is almost in place as you can see here. the pieces to make it were already made, but I did have to add the reduction pattern (5 to 1) to make the finish end for attaching to the straps that make the lower part of the handle. Also in the photo are the wire spool I was using for the side walls as well as the trimmed ends of strapping my hole punch (the blue handle) and a favorite set of pliers. The snips are also in the picture, but only the cutting edge. as you can tell, I did not incorporate the bone into this instead opting for the handle made of maille.

The draft pattern for this rug came from a Norwegian calendar, and the color design is my own. It is made from cotton and cotton-blend knit materials and measures 41.5 by 20.5 inches.

In shades of blue and gray with accents of pink, this rug would make an eye-catching addition to your decor. It is small enough to be used as a table runner or wallhanging if you prefer.
