|Nicole- Anne's daughter's 2nd proggy rug. .|
|These Hooked Rugs are made on the old latch-hook canvas (which is so much harder to use than hessian or linen). A lady did a demonstration in the garden but we had to admit it was hard not to butt in! It was suggested you Must Put Latex or Thinned Glue on the Back to keep it together! Exclamation Mark! We politely didn't say anything and at least there was a bit of interest.|
She did use a latch-hook with the latch sticky-taped shut, which isn't a bad idea and they are easily found in op shops.
But I wanted to say how much Cheaper and Easier it is to work on hessian. And they don't fall apart. And come inside and look at ours!
|Here I am working on the footy rug.|
