One of the most rewarding projects to hook is a footstool. The finishing is easier than you may think. It is certainly faster.

Make your own rug hooked footstool

Annie's Flower Power rug hooked footstool by Cindi Gay I have several rug hooking footstool patterns available. I am posting complete instructions (videos are still being edited) on how to build your own using simple 2x4s, plywood and foam. There is a complete cutting diagram for the wood and the foam. I also have instructions on how to finish your hooking so you can complete your rug hooked footstool.
Here are the list of instructions available so far:
  1. Footstool Construction Material List
  2. Footstool Feet - Where to Get Them
  3. Footstool Feet - Staining
  4. Build the Box
  5. Adding the foam
  6. Preparing the Backing
  7. Sewing up the Sides
  8. Upholstery and Finishing Touches

Missing something? Please let me know so I can make these instructions as complete as possible.
