When you have completed all the hooking, remove your project from the re-usable hoop included in your kit. Trim away the excess burlap about one inch away from the pile. Iron well.

Sew Binding

Sew binding by hand or machine as close as possible to the hooked pile. A zipper foot makes it easier to get in close.

Remove Trim

Press the binding to the back, forming little pleats to ease around the curves. Hand sew hem.

Press Binding

If planning to hang, sew a dowel sleeve or luxite ring to the back of the piece.

Dowel Sleeve

Small rugs may be nailed to footstools, hung on the wall, or used as trivets.
