Newton Class 2010.....Shearing Rugs

On the 3rd day of class we took a break from our rugs to learn a new technique called "Sheared Rugs". Janice Lee provided us a piece of burlap, old scraps of wool, shirts, fun fabrics, a cup, plate and bowl. We were to draw a circle and then begin hooking. You hook the loops (just like regular hooking) then cut the loop. The look is fabulous and fun. Most of the class choose to use it for a chairpad. We did decide that our bottom side was much bigger than we wanted to admit and had to keep adding rows to make the pad larger!! It was fun but hard on the hands. Thanks Janice. NOTE: Mine is the finished one! hee hee
