My first locker hooked rug, made almost entirely of left-over scrap flannels from my families sleep clothes. The only material not used from scrap was most of the white, about 2 yards worth of that.

Here you can see the foundation material the rug is worked on.


The underside. You can see which half I learned how to make slip knots with the strips.  Undecided


And the finished rug. Thanks for looking.

That is beautiful! I bet it''s really soft, too. Smiley

I've never tried locker hooking, and it looks like fun! You did a great job, and I love the colors.

Very soft, very thick. If it weren't so heavy, it would make the perfect camping sleep pad.  Smiley

Sorry, missed your question some how.  Embarrassed

The rug is approximately 24 by 36 inches.  I want my next one to be much larger and hope to look into the supplies today or Thursday, which ever day I can borrow a car from my mom.  Smiley

That is a really neat idea! Why won't it work for that?

When you go hiking, you want to cut out as much weight as possible. If you have the choice to carry a super thick mat at three pounds or a still nice mat at 14 ounces, leaving that extra 2 pounds, 2 ounces for food, water or clean socks,  toasty warm socks or an extra cup of tea in the morning far outweigh that slightly thicker sleeping mat.
