So I was in Goodwill about a month ago, getting a little secondhand fix, when I decided to mosey on over to the fabric section. Usually this section skeezes me out a bit but I thought I would take a quick walk-by, and boy am I glad I did! I found this hook rug kit for one dollar! Just in time for V-day!
Upon purchasing this gem and taking it home, I realized that the little latch hook tool was not included. So, I went online and found out that you could buy the little guy for a couple dollars at Joann Fabrics. So I trudged on over to Castleton only to find that I had to buy an entire kit just to get the tool. $6.95 mind you! I thought I would share a photo of the unfortunate packaging. I admit, the packaging from my Goodwill find is nothing to write home about, but it is bad in an endearing/charming sort of way.
This is the little guy I needed.
And the finished product! (I decided to omit the lace.) I must say, I really enjoyed the latch hook process. Have any of our beloved readers given latch hooking a try? Do tell.
