A very rewarding and fun hobby that is very inexpensive to start, has a small learning curve and a great end result, is the art of rug hooking. Creating hooked rug kits are kits that can be ordered or created yourself, which will be made into beautiful, homemade rugs. These initial kits can be ordered from a website like ebay. Once you have your kit, you will need to buy a few very inexpensive materials. You will need a needle, your favorite kind of yarn. You can also choose a colored yarn if that is what you wish your rug to look like. In addition, you will need your favorite kind of linen and some raw burlap material.
Once you have all your raw materials, the fun begins. You can hold the design and stick it to the burlap. Then, you must loop the hooks until you come to the end and start the process all over again. There are hundreds of tutorials on the internet for different techniques and methods that people have successfully used to create their own designs.
Rug hooking has been around in the United States and other parts of the world for over two centuries. There are many hobbies to choose from, and creating your very own hooked rug kit is one of the best. These rugs are some of the finest rugs one can own, and you will have the privilege of decorating your house, office, kitchen, or room with something you created on your very own.
