I started locker hooking about 9 months ago after seeing one of Theresa's pattern purses that someone had made at a crafts festival. I bought my first of Theresa's books, a hook, and a kit for a trivet and from there on I was "hooked". A friend caught the bug at the same time I did & we have a blast working together. I've made baskets, petite totes, & 5 or 6 purses the size of the Festival tote.
Finally my friend & I made the Festival tote kits that we bought shortly after we started locker hooking. The purses are beautiful - definitely our favorites! Thank you for putting together such a fantastic product!
I use the purse daily & prefer longer handles so I did use different handles than came with the kit. We also had fun picking out lining fabrics to go with our purses.
Most of all I really appreciate your books and the info you have provided to help me learn a new craft that I love so much. Your free patterns have give me so many ideas to create new items. I have learned so much from your generous sharing of information.
