There is something very special about a rug hooked footstool. The finishing takes less time than it does to whip a same sized rug. Many of the hard parts can be done by professionals. Have the upholster build the box using the construction instructions. Then complete the hooking and sew up the sides carefully fitting it to your footstool form. Once it is ready, take it back to the upholsterer to have it stapled in place.

Finished size with the padding in place is 16″ x 16″ and 15″ tall when you use 6″ tall, 4″ wide feet.

Setup for hooking a large rug

There are many things I recommend that I do not sell.  Check out my Recommendations page to see them all.

Includes what rug hooking frame I recommend (hint: not the one in the pic because it is not made anymore), my favorite scissors and even the magnesium tablet that have changed my sleeping dramatically.
