The Hooked Carpetbag

By: Marita Friedman

Mendocino Carpetbag. Hooked by Marita Friedman, Moraga, CA, 2009. Revolution Carpetbag.

As a master curtain maker turned rug hooker, I've had great fun coming up with ways to combine my couture skills with my new love of hooking. And what could be a better combination than rug hooking and carpetbags? In this article, I give detailed directions for constructing a fabulous hooked carpetbag just in time for the Fourth of July. Take your time, have fun and make something special for yourself—but do be careful where you carry this bag. If they see yours, then your mother, your sister, and your best girlfriend are all going to want a carpetbag too!
