I took a workshop with Cindy Andrews, a wonderful rug hooking artist and teacher, years ago and began this chicken that I designed. It’s done with commercial wool fabric, that’s been over dyed and slightly felted. After cutting the fabric into 1/4″ strips, it was hooked into the design that I drew onto monk’s cloth, while stretched over a frame. I then sewed squares of the same fabric for the edging of the cushion along with a coordinating braid. I found the wicker base at a little shop and tied the finished cushion on it.
As much as I enjoyed making this, I’ve never done anymore rug hooking — there’s just too much to learn and do and NOT enough time!
