DIY CRAFT KIT - OCTOPUS OBSESSION - Complete Primitive Rug Hooking Kit - 16 x 16 Inch Linen Pillow

from 63.00

This listing is for one complete rug hooking kit for our original design, OCTOPUS OBSESSION.  This particular kit makes one 16 x 16 inch pillow, which is a great size for the beginner to intermediate 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 rug hooking natural, unbleached linen (with a 2-3 inch border, linen color medium brown - look through photos for details)
- 18 x 18 inch piece of linen for the pillow back
- one wooden rug hook (optional)
- enough hand dyed wool strips to finish the project, including real roving for the mermaid hair (strips are size number 8 or 1/4 inch wide). Colors include slightly mottled blue grey, maroon, textured brown and more!
- one color photo, color key, and instructions on how to complete this pillow

Please note that you will need a few additional supplies to finish your pillow: A 10-15 inch Quilting Hoop, Needle/Thread or Sewing Machine, 16 x 16 inch Pillow Insert (Standard Size).

Wool: Please note that many woolen strips are hand dyed and all are hand cut which may cause very slight variations in their shade and thickness. All wools are number 8 size strip unless otherwise noted. All strips are cut but may need to be torn apart to use (Just tear the scored lines quickly to pull apart).

I use a variety of solid and textured wools in my kits and wool mixes. Some shredding of textured wools (ombres, herringbones, plaids) is completely normal, expected, and add visual richness to your rug.

Wool Quantity: 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, that I may not be able to color match the colors in your kits, but I will try my hardest to get you the closest match possible. I will send out one package of wool free of charge - after that I ask that you pay for additional strips and shipping costs. I recommend that you complete all areas of the rug to the best of your ability before requesting colors so multiple packages do not need to be sent out.

About our Hooks: You have the option to include a wooden medium sized hook with your kit. Hooks in kits are only an additional $6 - a great value!

Kits come packaged in a study plastic bag with colorful front page label that includes a large color photo of your kit. Kits will be mailed in a poly mailing bag. Please see my listing for "Gift Box and Upgraded Priority Mail Shipping" listing if you'd like to upgrade to a beautiful gift box with cute label and bow (and upgraded shipping).
