It’s always fun when I get a newly published book to give away. This time it’s, Hooked Rug Designs for Baby & Beyond by Norma Batastini [© 2019 Ampry Publishing LLC / Rug Hooking].
This book is filled with colorful rugs designed and hooked by many rug hookers for their children and grandchildren of all ages. Many of the designs are original ones adapted from drawings by their imaginative youngsters.
Do you have some artwork on your refrigerator that would make a wonderful hooked rug? Can you imagine how much it would mean to frame the artwork and make a matching hooked rug for some special child? It would be a family heirloom for years to come.
Norma gives many examples of styles and ideas to create your own rugs. She also goes over copyright laws concerning familiar and popular cartoon characters and gives practical ways to stay within the rules.
