My little man, Stogie, was the inspiration for this rug design. I spent a lot of time looking at antique hooked rugs of dogs to narrow in on a style and aesthetic and am really happy with how it came out. I took the scrappy, hit or miss approach to the background and hooked this entirely with recycled cashmere. How would you approach this? There are so many different looks that could be achieved.
