DIY CRAFT KIT - BEGINNER CARDINAL by Guest Designer, Sharon Perry - Complete 8 by 8 inch Primitive Rug Hooking Kit on Your Choice of Foundation
This listing is for one complete rug hooking kit from our Guest Designer, Sharon Perry. This particular design, BEGINNER CARDINAL, measures 8 X 8 inches, which is a great size for the beginner rug hooker. Try out this relaxing, easy craft or give it as a gift to your crafty friend!
Each kit comes with:
- one hand drawn pattern on your choice of foundation material (with, at least, a 4 inch border)
- one Moshimer maple hook (optional)
- rug binding
- enough hand dyed wool strips to finish the project (number 8, 1/4 inch wide)
- one color photo, color key, and instructions on how to complete the rug
A rug of this size can be completed using a 8 - 10 inch quilting hoop, easily found in any local craft store.
About our Foundation Material: We offer this kit on two different materials - monks cloth or natural, unbleached linen. Linen is a nice, soft foundation that has the rustic feel of burlap without being rough on your skin. Monks Cloth is a cotton based foundation and great for beginners because of it's durability, low cost, and flexibility.
About our Wool: Our wools are all pre-washed and mostly hand dyed. They are a vary in their thickness and texture to create richness within your rug. Because each kit is hand assembled, I am able to customize colors, if needed. Please also note that colors vary from computer monitor to monitor and certain shades may be slightly different from photo. We also substitute colors from time to time due to wool availability - please contact me if you have any questions about colors!
Info about our kits: I always provide enough wool strips to complete every rug, but everyone hooks a little differently. If you find that you have run out of wool strips, I'll be happy to send them to you free of charge. Please note I can only color match within three months of your kit purchase (after that I will try to match to the best of my ability). I will send out one package of wool free of charge - after that I ask that customers pay the shipping charge to send out additional packages of wool (with strips remaining free of charge). I recommend that clients fill in each area of their project before requesting wool to be sure they don't need more than one color sent out.
