Categories DIY. Locker hooking is a thrifty old school craft well worth reviving. You can make useable rugs and hot pads or go for fancy decorative table runners and wall hangings made from left over fabric and yarn. I love learning old school, mostly forgotten craft techniques.

So glad I could help out! You sure do store your stuff a lot neater than I do. I really like my rug and should do another one. I started a locker hooking project a couple of years ago, but got bored with it. Looks easier. Thanks for the inspiration. That looks like a fabulous background for some embroidery or collaging!

Introduction to Locker Hooking
At first glance, you might think this is similar to latch hooking, where a special hook is used to wrap a length of yarn around a thread in a large-count canvas. This requires a lot of pre-cut yarn lengths in various colors to create a design usually a rug or a wall hanging. Most of these projects are sold as kits available at craft stores. Using strips of fabric and a large-count canvas you can make rugs, ornaments, book covers, trivets, and much more. You are limited only by the fabrics available.
Rug hooking is the craft of creating rugs by pulling loops of fabric or yarn through a woven backing. There is evidence of rug hooking techniques in rag rugs made by the Vikings. Weaving mills had byproducts called thrums a piece of yarn about 9 inches long that were basically leftovers from the process. The workers at these mills would take these thrums home and put them to use by pulling them through a backing to create rugs.
