I had never seen this type of thing before, which is referred to as locker hooking, and is a close cousin to rug hooking. After just a few page flips, I knew I’d have to get this book! I also purchased the required locker hooking needle and some rug canvas. If you have an abundance of fabric, ribbon or thick, chunky yarn, I suggest that you give this craft a try. It’s a lot of fun, and lends itself to the mismatched charm also achieved with making braided rag rugs.
More recently, I found a clever way to store my handmade fabric coasters that’s really for the birds – literally! This never used suet cage I had on hand was just the right size for storing the coasters. I think they look adorable in there, don’t you?
Leave a comment about your locker hooking experience, awareness, or lack of. And, do stay tuned… I’ve got more crafty ideas up my sleeve!
