Greater self expression, encouraged nowadays, and a willingness to experiment can often be the impetus to explore the use of embellishments in one’s work.  These are items such as beads, buttons, sequins, feathers, shells, alternative fibers, any decorative detail that is used to add design interests to a piece.  Other techniques such as felting, applique, embroidery, and crochet, etc. may be integrated into a hooked piece and serve as embellishments.  

Have fun exploring these rugs — can you find the bits that embellish the basic hooked rugs?
