Locker Hook Pattern: Welcome Home Rug
Told you that I haven’t got enough with locker hooking. This craft is really hooking me up. If you haven’t known how to do this, I have the tutorials for it, from basic preparation, locker hooking and finishing touch. Hover over to the tutorials now and get started with this fantastic craft.
This Welcome Home Rug / floor mat measures 78cm x 52cm (30 11/16” x 20 1/2“).
As for the material, I used 4 solid colors of poly jersey interlock, dark brown (1 meter), turquoise (2 meters), olive green (1/2 meter), and baby pink (1/2 meter), cut them into 2cm wide strips. I specially love jersey interlock because both sides of the fabric are the identical, and it frays very little. Thus, it will give a fresher color and neater look to the project.
Let’s get ready for this project…..

Follow the tutorial of the Basic Preparation to gather all the materials you need, prepare the edge of the hooking rug canvas, cut the fabrics into 2 cm wide strips.
Begin to locker hook the pattern onto the canvas, don’t forget to pre-draw the pattern onto the canvas for easy reference. Upon sewing the border, locker hook the brown border in circular. The internal pattern (turquoise background, the words, the foot and paws prints) is in horizontal direction.
Hide all the ends and sew a backing to cover the back of the work. If you are not sure how to do this, you can go here for the tutorial.
