Welcome to BeFruitful Kreations by artist JoEllen Laurita where primitive artwork is my passion. For many years now I have been designing and sharing my primitive whimsical artwork. You will find that I like several art forms. Primitive dolls will always hold my heart, but you will see rug hooked creations, many of them dimensional, seasonal folk art, punch needle creations and much more.
As I have been thinking about dimensional rug hooking. Several idea's have come to my head for future projects. One of the things I am concidering is to teach how to do a Rug Hooked Teddy Bear. Or even a different animal. Please let me know if you are interested in this.
Remember I am happy to do special orders and I do try to find something for your color schemes. After these dolls and patterns are finished. I hope to begin another spring rug hooking pattern. What should I make dimensional this spring? Plus create a tutorial on dimensional rug hooking. Please stay posted for when this tutorial will become available.
I did one last year on my Easter Eggs.
Also I hope to put all my doll making tips into one place and post this information. You learn a lot through the years as you make dolls. I want to pass on this information that I have gleaned a long the line.
I have given myself one more month to complete my rug. These rugs are huge. 4 1/2 feet by 3 feet. Whewww Big Huge Rugs.
I will be doing a little more reverse hooking here. The letters in the sky I will make darker. So they show up better. It is good to look at a picture of the rug so I can see things that need changing. Like the cross I had to make much darker and the heart that hangs from the black birds mouth. I am having a blast designing and hooking this rug. Even dyeing the fabric. Hooking with roving, yarn and wool strips. How fun this is!!!!
