Polyester In a Rug?
What using something besides wool in a rug? Well it's all about use it up and make it do! I had found some really cool polyester strips in some of Frank's goodies and I nabbed them up. Polyester strips of Dagwood and Blondie comics are the center of my flowers and they look really awesome.
Now I'm thinking about trying a rug in polyester and pantyhose! Makes you think out of the box. You don't always have to use wools if you want to try rug hooking. Even found myself using some homespun fabric in my farm scene rug. It blended in quite nicely.
The little house and flower rug above is a design by Frank Bielec and I sure enjoyed hooking it during the workshop. Everytime I look at it I'll be reminded of all the fun we all had :)
