This listing is for the rug hooking kit for my design "Cardinal Mug Rugs" 5" x 5". The design is drawn on a 19" x 20" backing fabric and will fit on most lap frames or in a 14" hoop. I have serged the outside edge to prevent raveling. A colored photo pamphlet of the mug rugs and "how to finish" tips are included with the pattern. It does not include instruction on how to hook.
If you wish to purchase the pattern only for Cardinal Mug Rugs, the item number is P152.
These Cardinal Mug Rugs would make a very nice set when paired with my 8" x 8" Cardinal Birdhouse Mat. See the third photo above - Listed as P151
This is a great pattern for a beginner. For the veteran hooker, they hook up quickly and would be a great gift for a friend or a wonderful thank-you to a host or hostess.

Each kit includes:
1. The pattern on cotton monks cloth or primitive linen, select your choice.
2. 100% wool fabrics that I have hand dyed and/or felted. Cut or uncut, your choice.
3. Wool to back the mug rugs.
4. Instructions on where to use the colors in the wool pack, how to finish the mug rugs, and a color photo. It does not include instructions on how to hook.
The rug hooking kits are based on the colors and amounts, of wool I used when hooking these rugs in a #8 cut. Great efforts are made to match the original wools,and to include enough wool to complete the project. If you hook tighter, higher or in a different cut than specified, you are welcome to purchase additional wool if needed. Convo me if you need additional wool and I will give you a quote. Due to inconsistencies in photography and electronic media, colors may vary from what you see here.
The wool selections may differ slightly from the original version, but it will look very similar to the rug in the photo.
This Kit DOES NOT include a hook or finishing tape or yarn.
