Great FUN WAY to DESIGN RUGS


CUT PIECES of Styrofoam and carve into it a design of simple structures . . .paint on these pieces with acrylic paint and print (press)onto paper . ..

 in this case my young friend Hannah used handmade paper  . .. since they are greeting cards . .. .

A great way to play around and design in ones Rug Hooking IDEAS JOURNAL . . ..

Not using a pencil to design keeps our designs SIMPLE . .. and easier to hook especially when using a #9 cut strip!
THANKS Hannah!
