Rug Hooked Chair Pad
The central tulip design on this hooked chair pad was inspired by a pattern by Joan Moshimer (an iconic rug hooker who made her profound mark back in the 1960s/'70s). The pattern was in a box of woolen treasures that I was recently gifted. Moshimer's original pattern had much more detail, and was intended to be hooked in a very thin cut wool for a formal look. I simplified the pattern, and hooked the piece according to my more primitive style. The chair pad is wool hooked on burlap, and measures 12" in diameter. Price: $65.00 (plus postage if applicable).
