BRAND NEW PATTERN - Summer's Best Pickings!
We are so honored to have an article in the June/July/August 2022 issue of Rug Hooking Magazine, featuring the special techniques used in this design to weave a dimensional basket with "wool worms" - the leftover strips of wool from rug hooking! The feature article also shares the "story behind the art" of the warm July day when "Auntie Kathy" took Caroline and Grace (her great-nieces) blueberry picking in Massachusetts! It's a charming tale of sweet little girls, blueberries picked and gobbled, and lots of giggles!
Our NEW pattern for 2022 comes with detailed written instructions, a full scale pattern layout with pattern pieces, and a beautiful color photograph - plus, this one has over 30 color step-by-step photographs showing all the details of making this dimensional basket of berries! Make a sweet wall hanging to celebrate summer's best pickings!
This dimensional basket is fully woven, like a real basket! And the "wallpaper" floral motifs are embroidered onto the hand-dyed linen background. A delightful project combining many textiles and techniques!
Finished size: 8" x 10"
