I thought I would share my latest creation. Well, it's not totally created yet, but I'm working on it. Hooking is a slow process, and my last one took my a year and almost 7 months to complete. This time round I decided that I was going to use strips of fabric and see how I like it compared to using wool, which is what I normally use.

I have been meaning to make some coasters for a while now, but was working at finishing my parents Christmas gift. So now that is done, and I am on to the coasters. Using t-shirts I decided very early that I didn't like the t-shirt on it's own. I will be using a bit of wool to give the rugs more texture. Take a peek:

Originally I thought I would make them all the same, but I determined that would be boring (perhaps just for me). So I will use all the same colours, but to each one a different design. I'll keep you posted on how they turn out.

What do you think so far?


  1. They look great! Does that hurt your hands??

  2. Not at all in fact, if I hook for too long my hands get tired, but otherwise no pain! :)


Thanks so much for spending some time with me, if you're feeling up to it please leave me a note. I really enjoy them, and take the time to read every single one! :)
