Locker Hooked Heart Box--Experimenting with Texture

Here's an easy design for a heart gift box. I have been experimenting with different materials to create texture in designs and decided to try raffia ribbon (the one I used is made from rayon). I hooked a heart shape for the lid of a paper mache box with fabric, variegated yarn and raffia for lots of texture. I pulled up extra long loops for more texture! I also thought I should try a lid with a locker hooked "ruched frame" design so I created one for a smaller box. See images…

I make rag rugs and twined rugs and crochet rugs. I am pretty new to locker hooking but so far I am enjoying this new craft. Thank you, Kathy Rieger

Thanks Theresa.

It sounded like lots of Spam emails I get. I suppose when one way doesn't work, they try another. I appreciate you responding so quickly.

Hi Theresa. Someone just commented on my profile and it looks a lot like a spam message. I'm not sure if you have a way to report something like that. If she's doing it to me, she's probably doing it to others as well. The name is Stella Kwale. I'd be happy to send you what she wrote if you are not able to see it. Thank you. Robin

So pleased I found your site. I don't think locker hooking is big in New Zealand yet, I had to make my own needle from a dollmakers needle! Was lockerhooking till 2am this morning,dont know where the time went.Thanks for the welcome.

Thank you for the email and the great web site. One of the first things I ordered from Amazon to get me started on Locker Hooking was one of your great books. I belong to a small 'knitting etc" group and I usually end up mostly enjoying the chatting because if I'm crocheting or knitting, I lose track of where I'm at, lol. I think that will not happen so much with locker hooking. Thanks again and looking forward to your next book.

thanks for your warm welcome. so far I cut a piece out of the canvas I bought at the fabric store about 6"X6" and used the plarn that I was crocheting with. Turned out real nice. I put it under a plant that I was trying to sell at the farmer's market and got some nice comments on it. Haven't had time to look at any detailed info yet. Looks like I should be able to make a plarn rectangle and turn it into a purse to add to my crochet purses that I sell at the market.  Thank you for such a nice and inspiriational site.

So cool you like my work, discovering locker hooking has been such an inspiration to me. I love it because it is so versatile!  I even talked about locker hooking and your site in my little blog today (I hope you don't mind). Here it is!  When I finish a chair project and the wall hanging, the leather is the next to try.  I think the company sells the scrap (huge beautiful pieces) by the lb. and it is rumored to be around $4 a lb.  Oh and to answer your question about FB and the pictures, I would be flattered for you to share them.  Have a fantastic day!  Thanks again!

Thanks so much for your welcoming comment!  I absolutely love locker hooking and I appreciate how much you have done for the craft.  When I found this forum I was excited to be able to ask you a question, and I'm just tickled to get the chance!  I have read that some people locker hook with leather.  There is a leather manufacturing company in the town I live in and I am able to get scrap leather by the lb, for a great price.  What I wanted to know was if you have ever tried to use it, and what suggestions do you have?  Thanks so much! - Vera

Hi Theresa, Thank you for accepting my application to join your website.  I fell in love with what you are doing.  I would love to learn more about it and hopefully get my daughter involved as well.  Yes, it is me from Creative Labs. Looks like you have always had the "Creative" touch.

I have checked out your video ... love it.
