Patterns & Kits for Rug Hooking - Seasonal

Click the category of interest to jump to that section of my kits & patterns.

Party Jack

My most current pillow topper design created for Create and Decorate magazine celebrates Halloween! Party Jack is all dressed up and ready to go to the Halloween Ball. Hook it as a pillow topper, as seen here, or as a table mat or even a wall hanging.


  13 x 13 inches

Be Mine

I designed and hooked this rug to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but it is also a great addition to any country decor. I added a little twist to the traditional ‘heart in hand’ motif, incorporating little hearts between each finger of the hand. When you love somebody, every day can be Valentine’s Day.

15 x 15 inches

Slippery Slope

I created several designs that incorporated unusual techniques and materials into the hooking project. This design incorporates metallic yarns and a beading technique for the border. The instructions that come with the pattern teach you how, but you can hook this delightful snowman using your traditional techniques and materials, as well.

18 x 12  inches

Mismatched Mittens

Here is another design in which I incorporated unusual techniques and materials into the hooking project. This design incorporated rolled wool shapes for the hearts on the mittens (see the enlarged photo.) The instructions that come with the pattern teach you how, but you can hook this fun mitten pattern using all traditional rug hooking, too.

13 x 13  inches.

Old Black Cat

My favorite time of the year -- Fall (and Halloween, of course.)  This is my adaptation of the old black cat post card. I hooked the background in several green and gold wools for that wormy look. This piece is sized perfectly for a chair pad, but it would also be a great addition as you decorate for Halloween .

15 inches

Fat Jack

Here's another fun mat for Halloween. Hooks up really fast and only needs three or four wools to look great! I used an orange plaid, gold check, and a cool stripe with fall colors, and just a tad of black inside the mouth and around the eyes. This piece is also sized perfectly for a chair pad, but you can also use it on a table or hung on your door!

15 inches

Harvest Cat Basket Cover

My passion for old baskets and rug hooking have collided in this harvest design! With the full harvest moon as a backdrop, this bewitching black cat waits for the basket to be filled to the brim with the season's bounty! I attached my hooking to the inside of the basket lid, so the hooking would show when the basket was open and filled with pumpkins and bittersweet. You can attach it to the outside of your lid if you wish.

18 x 23 inches (adjust to fit your basket.)

 Holiday Stockings

 I had so much fun designing these special holiday stockings! Who says you can't fill a stocking with goodies for Halloween? And the crow is in the Christmas spirit, carrying his feather tree home to decorate his nest. I hooked the stocking with my overdyed wools and they are lined and backed with wool.

Stocking measures 15 inches at the widest foot area and 23 inches long - great size to hold lots of goodies or decorations!

Sunflowers!Sunflowers rug hooking pattern

This mat was so much fun to design and hook. Sunflowers are one of my favorites -- so big, so colorful--and they feed our eyes, then they feed the birds. God is the greatest designer of all! I hooked the petals of the sunflowers with very long loops, and then when they were done, I clipped the loops unevenly to make the fringy petals. When I hooked the centers, I hooked the outer rows closer and the inner rows a bit longer to give some roundness to the heads to resemble the seeds.

16 x 11 inches.

Hooked Door Pockets

Create both of these celebratory door pockets - one for Halloween and one for winter. Halloween features two jack-o-lanterns and the winter pocket is a big mitten with your initial. So easy and they hook up really fast.  Available as pattern on linen.

Happy Day

This hooked mat celebrates someone’s special day – it could be a birthday or any special occasion. The whimsical stack of cupcakes could even be numbered for a birthday or anniversary. Hooking “Happy Day” along the bottom lets you hook this design for any special day.

12.5 x 20 inches

To Have and To Hold

I designed and hooked this half moon rug for a special friend as her wedding gift. The pattern will be customized to incorporate the names and wedding date of your special couple.
