This is a cute pattern designed by Norma Batastini and hooked by me in 2013. It’s taken from the unusual work done by artist Magdalena Briner Eby. She lived in PA from 1832-1915. Her rugs are incredible examples of early American folk art.
I hooked this design from a 1960’s photo of my Father and one of the very large strippers he caught.
Rug started at Cape May Rug School 2011. 45”x35”. Prodded wing. Fun to hook!!
The 1/2 inch wide strips were cut with a rotary cutter.
This is one of two horse rugs that I hooked in a wide hand cut.
This small mat is an image of a Giant Schnauzer that was hooked in 2011.

They are lightweight and can be worn even in the summer. They were all very different and the embellishments they added to the felt […]
