I never get tired of flipping through the latest locker hook book from Theresa Pulido, “Locking Loops: Unique Locker Hooking Handcrafts to Wear and Give”. Thanks to Theresa for sending her autographed book together with some sample supplies to me for the book review and project testing. Get a peek below at what’s in the book… I am sure you will love it too.
With a compilation of 30 unique locker hook projects & new techniques, Locking Loops provides alluring projects suitable for every skill level, from beginner to veteran. This book offers colorful projects to give and wear; from rugs, pillows, tableware, baskets, bags, and wearables like a belt, brooch, bracelet, and more.
And, if you would love to get Theresa’s first locker hook book, Hook, Loop ‘n’ Lock: Create Fun and Easy Locker Hooked Projects, you can buy it from Amazon too. This is the book that inspired me into locker hooking crafts.
You can also view the video of Theresa, introducing the “Locking Loops” Locker Hooking Book, produced by the book publisher F+W Media.
If this is your first time trying locker hook craft, you can buy the kit from Color Crazy online shop. Basically, you can get all you need for locker hooking there, from tools to materials.
This is my autographed copy and I am in love with it.
I am going to try out the projects with the sample Theresa gave. Will show you later once it is done.
With Theresa’s easy to follow step by step photos and descriptions, one can easily learn how to locker hook in no time.
I am a good example, remember I told you about how I was deeply inspired by Theresa after I bought her first book Hook, Loop ‘n” Lock when I wrote my first tutorial on this craft.
This is my favorite… Hope to try it soon!!! However, this is for the advanced level as it involves more complicated steps.
A lovely garden preserved basket perfect as a “gift basket” for the homemade fruit preserved for friends and families.
I think I am going to try this project first, a floral name cardholder.
There are 2 projects on Christmas ornaments, a Christmas tree, and a snowman. If you buy the book now and start learning it, you can make them in time for this coming Christmas.
