Rug hooking backing to fit your frame (such as linen, rug warp or monks cloth)
Felted wool (color of choice.) (This is a good time to use up all those little pieces of scrap wool.)

Prepare your leaves:
Getting ready to Proddy:
Using a large hook insert it into the backing about five holes away from the stitch line. Holding a leaf strip underneath pull one end of leaf up to the top - skip over a few holes and insert hook into backing again and pull up other end of leaf. Repeat this process until all the backing is filled around the entire circle.
When using a Proddy tool you will be working from the underneath pushing the leaf from the back to the front.
Looking forward to seeing all these creations.
