Latch Hook Rugs

Latch Hook Rugs

When I wasn't working on my gum wrapper chain, I was trying out other crafts, like latch hook rugs. Making a latch hook rug was the perfect winter activity because the rug kept you warm as you created it. I made two, which, unfortunately, I no longer have. One was Holly Hobbie on a lime green background; the other a Santa Claus design. It was a Christmas present and I finished it over winter vacation. Below are some retro latch hook rugs and a few felted rugs. The colors and groovy patterns make me smile. Enjoy!
