"A Glittering Dragon Fly" This short Rug Hooking course is interesting and challenging for beginner and intermediate students. We use the traditional rug hooking technique in the background. Glittery threads and yarns are incorporated into the dragonfly design. The project is started in class and finished at home. It may be used as a pillow, wall hanging or sewn onto a jacket. It is a small project that is fun and easy to do with the additional challenge of working with the threads and yarns. The design is 8" x 10" on linen backing For $55 including pattern, wool flannel, yarns, threads, cording and yarn for finishing.
