    Thanks for the link - never saw this before. Looks like a great project for road trips.

    I agree this is prefect for road trips. the mesh keeps the project in shape. You only need the 1 1/2 inch strips so you can just stick them in a bag. I also sewed a bunch of strips together and then cut into stips..Yah...works great. You can sew all instead of cutting the holes and slipping them though to make the strips longer. I did both and both look the same.

Size:  1.67 MBAnother rug in the making...this is really a great way to use up left over strips...it does take a lot of fabric. I brought my cat to the vet and well sitting there waiting...was able to work on this. Quick and Easy.

    If you get into doing bigger rugs or what to use burlap you will want to use a frame. My mom had a rug hooking frame that she no longer uses. I went to Lowes and bought carpet gripers - 3 long pieces of wood with nails sticking out of it...then I bought velcro strips and for under 10.00 it made the perfect locker hooking frame. I just place my rug onto the frame. No clips or rolling. It works great and holds my piece nice and tight. Name:  112_3977.JPG
