Day 10 of 30 Days of Giveaways - Hook Loop & Lock

IHAN's 30 Days of Giveaways
Anniversary Celebration

 Ooooohhh Ahhhhhhhh.....(short shallow breaths).....Wow, aren't those beautiful?  That is what I said the first time I saw Theresa Pulido's work.  She was sitting  at a table outside a large conference room.  I saw her using this beautiful fabric and an hook.  Theresa smiled as I approached and I asked what she was doing.... "Locker Hooking (which refer to the tools that are used), would you like to see?"...(really big smile on my face) "Yes!"  Who would not want to know what she was doing with all that lovely fabric and those cool looking tools?  


For those of you who are not familiar with locker hooking tools, I bet you want to know how it is done, don't you? 
I thought so.....

Didn't you think that was a great video?  Feeling more confident that you can also make something very cool?  (if your answer was not yet...check out Theresa's second video on her website: Color Crazy.)

This craft is a great way to deplete a whole lot of scraps and leftovers from other projects.  Once used, you can shop for more fabric with a clear conscious!!
Can you imagine this as a house warming gift?
 
Theresa's Sari Silk Bangles are just stunning.  Did someone say SILK?  Wow that is a popular word these days:)  Another great use for the winner of the Brewer Dupioni Silk Giveaway!!

Theresa has a new kit coming out next month:


 You may want to become a fan on Facebook or her blog so you will know when it is available.

  28. I have never tried locker hooking. I have seen some beautiful work in a local shop and wondered how it differed from rug hooking. If I win, I will find out first hand! :-).

    ReplyDelete
  29. thx Theresa for this opportunity. I had seen some locker hooking at the local county fair & had a friend explain it to me. I've wanted to give it a try since last summer. So far, I've got a hook & and idea!!! Not sure how to proceed & not sure how to start & end the rows of string. Will have to view the video & maybe my questions answered there!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Kelly, years ago I purchased a kit. I never got around to it since it looked complicated. I would love to be able to make something like this. It looks so much less complicated now.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I am new to locker hooking and am excited to find all the projects that you can do with it. I have shared my interest in this "obsession" with my fellow quilt guild members and found that I am not the only one who thinks this is a great idea to use up scraps of fabric. I will definitely be making gifts for next Christmas as well as some throw rugs for my own home using the techniques shown by Theresa. Thank you for posting the videos and info.

  69. About the only thing I've ever seen similar...my kid brother participated in rodeos (prior to getting girl crazy). He rode his horse in competition...barrels, poles, etc. My mother hooked his name into the saddle blanket. Not quite the same technique, but similar. This would be a great way to work up some of those stringy scraps of fabric.
