Q: I like to create my own latch hooked rugs and pillows with a latch hook tool, latch hook canvas and pre-cut yarn, can I use the easyloop® fauxchét® tool combined with my latch hook canvas crafting?
A: Yes, you can use the easyloop® fauxchét® tool in a variety of ways that will turn ordinary latch hook projects into extraordinary. The easyloop® fauxchét® on canvas finishing techniques consist of stitching around the canvas edges with yarn (as opposed to sewing rug binding around the edges), adding beads to your canvas projects, loop stitching, single fauxchét® stitch and more. By using a continuous strand of yarn, directly from the skein (and not pre-cut rug yarn) your canvas projects will stitch up quickly. The fauxchét® tool and unique stitching method can be used in a “paint by color” style with printed latch hook canvas and yarns from the skein that coordinate with the colors printed on the canvas. If you prefer the shaggy look of a traditional latch hooked rug, the loop stitch loops can be cut to resemble the shaggy latch hook look.
Q: I like working with beads and making my own jewelry and other beaded projects. Can the easyloop® fauxchét® tool be used with beads and yarn to make jewelry?
A: Yes, the easyloop® fauxchét® tool works with large holed beads such as pony beads and more. Any bead that has a hole large enough to slide on to the needle tip of the easyloop® fauxchét® tool can be used to create hand stitched beaded fauxchét® jewelry, belts, bags and more with worsted and bulky yarns.
Q: I’ve never worked with yarn before but have always wanted to try. Will I be able to learn how to use the easyloop® fauxchét® tool if I have no experience with knitting, crochet, latch hooking, beading or yarn crafting of any kind?
A: Yes, without any experience at all you will be able to learn to use the easyloop® fauxchét® tool and you won’t believe how fast and easy the simple stitching technique is. The instruction books include color step-by-step photos that take you through every stitch of the way of learning this creative new needlecraft.
