Red Bird is a good opportunity to play with new embellishment techniques. Try proddy for the big sunflowers, add some old buttons to the bird, use some yarn or silk ribbon in the ground and leaves... What fun!
This is a great size to make into a pillow; hook the companion design, Blue Bird, and add instant life to your living room.
The pattern comes to you ready to hook and carefully hand drawn on premium quality bleached primitive linen with a generous 3 - 4" border around the pattern. A good image of the original artwork is included with the pattern to use as a guide for hooking.....or come up with your own fun color plan!
This design measures about 20" wide X 26" high when completed.
This spunky rug hooking pattern is adapted from the artwork of Karla Gerard. It's a great design with lots of room for creative expression and color experimentation.
Our wool kits* for our appliqué designs are created especially for each design and are carefully prepared with ample wool to complete your project. The wools in the kit will generally not be the same wools used to stitch the original and are intended to give a look similar to, but not the same as, the original. Keep in mind that the photograph accompanying the pattern is meant as a guide only; your piece will be uniquely your own.
* Please note: Unless noted otherwise in the product description, our kits do not include threads, non-wool fabrics called for in the design, buttons, or other non-wool items.
In The Merry Hooker Woolens studio we constantly look for independant designers who create interesting & exciting designs to add to our pattern catalog. We communicate frequently with our designers and try to add new designs as they become available.
Some of our patterns are produced right here in our studio and some come directly from our designers. All of our patterns are hand drawn on high quality primitive 100% linen that is suitable for a #5 cut strip or larger. Each pattern is carefully inspected for overall quality and to be sure that it is drawn on the straight of grain.
