Locker Hooking...Wait, What Did You Just Say??

During a trip to have my Mom's sewing machine serviced and repaired we came across a class being offered locally called Locker Hooking. They had examples of a few projects they had made, and needless to say we took one look at it and we were hooked. ;) hehe Here is a definition of Locker Hooking -- "Locker hooking is an “old rug hooking technique” originating from Great Britain in the early 1900's. Using a steel locker hook (a crochet hook with a large needle 'eye' on other end), latch hook rug canvas, fabric strips, and yarn (which is inside the loops) you can make rugs, wall hangings, baskets, purses, kitchen items, frames, clothing, blankets, home decor and accessories." -- that I found here.

Mom ordered hook, loop & lock on Amazon a few days later and the projects in there are SO CUTE!!! All of the photos are directly from projects in the book!

A journal cover!! LOVE this one!

Super cool lampshade!!

Purses and tote bags too!!!

HOW FUN!! Tic tac Toe!

With Easter coming up, who wouldn't want an adorable handmade Easter basket? :)

And finally a CUTE placemat!! I think they even have a table runner as well!

We both can't wait to get started on a few things! We'll be posting about our progess soon, so stay tuned!!!
