Rug Hooked Cat Purse

Our cat is the model for my Rug hooking project this week.  I am in the process of assembling a Rug Hooked Cat purse. I love when what I see in my creative minds eye actually comes together. 
This purse is coming along nicely. I hope to be able to teach how to make thispurse in a pattern. 
It may be about time to do another online Tutorial as well. So look for a photo soon on a wonderful 
Rug Hooked Cat Purse.

Teddy Bear William Potts OOAK

Meet William Potts

This is my second rug hooked Teddy Bear. The bear parts are all hand hooked with the tradition art of Rug Hooking. William Potts is rug hooked with dyed raw wool with silk noils added. This wool has added such a unique coloring to this bear. Notice his snout and paws are purple. William Potts has a bead packet inside of his body to give him addition weight. His eyes are glass buttons and I added mohair behind his eyes to give him addition facial character traits. William Potts’ nose and mouth were hand stitched with black floss. His legs pads have been needle sculpted adding dimension to them. The wool scarf around William Potts's neck with come with the bear. This Teddy Bear is 12” tall while sitting and 13” wide at the widest part. This bear is not a toy and should not be given to children.

If you like this bear get him while you can. I can not make another bear this color as I do not have enough of the dyed raw wool to do that. These are OOAK as no two will ever look exactly alike. The different raw wool used will always make them different.

This guy was given as a gift.

Progress on Teddy Bear

I hope to get a photo up, very soon, of my Rug Hooked Teddy Bear as he is now all finished.
I like to look at my creations for a while to see if I need to make changes. Often I will notice things here and there that do need to be change.

Today I started to design my next rug hooking project. I have wanted to make a cat purse with my own cat as the focus. I think you will love this design. 

Have you hooked a cat before. Did you choose to hook the whiskers or choose to not hook the whiskers? Or maybe you used another material after it was hooked. If so what did you use? 
I would love to hear your answers.

Rug Hooked Teddy Bear

Here is the beginning of my next Rug Hooked Teddy Bear. 
I have had this wool roving with silk noils in it. In both purple and blue. 
This bear has been on my mind for a long time. It was time to hook it. 
The bear is all hooked and I have sewn the pieces together. 
I am beginning to stuff the parts. 
This is going to be a fun Blue and purple Rug Hooked Teddy Bear. 

Stay tuned for progress on this bear. 
I did a little research today on Rug Hooked Teddy Bears. 
There is not very much information on the web about this.

This bear will be for up for adoption soon.

Rug Hooked Teddy Bear

I have some wonderful purple and also blue wool with silk knolls in it. I have been wanting to make a teddy bear with these for a long time. I started this bear three days ago. It actually hooks up rather quickly. But I will have to wait and see what the actual finished bear will turn out like. 
Here is the one other Teddy Bear I made. 

Think I will be making another bear soon as well.
