Rug Hooking

I just wanted to share this video with you. I have watched many rug hooking video tutorials and this one is great, covers just about every thing.

Just a quick addition to this post.
I've been working on my own rug.
I began with the rug hooking method and was concerned the medium may fall out, so I locked it in with the locker hooking method, it may be a bit of over kill, but there is so much work in one of these, I did not want it to fall apart. Here is my mat, I was making it for a toilet mat, but it maybe too good for that.

It is sort of a Picaso design with a bit of my humor in it.
I've been using all types of medium to create it.
From shirts to sheets to yarn.
