Had a visit from a customer that wanted facial details on her rug. It's a small area and she had hooked and unhooked it several times but was not happy with the results. I suggested we needle felt on top of her hooking. We were able to get the look she wanted, with great detail, in a matter of minutes. A beautiful rug that will hang in her church.
Watch for an article I've done in Rug Hooking Magazine on 'Felting Details,' that will show other examples of felting with rug hooking.
