Make a small wool penny rug the easy way! Just sew around the pre-cut shapes with embroidery using the buttonhole stitch. These penny rugs are the perfect size to hold your morning cup of coffee or tea. The finished size is about 5".
The kits are made from 100% wool that has been reclaimed from thrift store clothing. Each one has been felted and kitted just for you. Each kit also includes an instruction sheet. Because these are cut from recycled wool, there may be bits of interfacing on one side. Just turn the interfacing to the back, I actually prefer using the bits with interfacing, I think it helps add stability and body to the finished piece.
When sewn up, they have a front and a back. The front is adorned with layered "wool pennies" and there is a large piece to cover all the knots and finish the back -- nice and tidy.
There are other pre-cut kits available including Square, Scalloped, and Round. If you don't see what you are looking for, don't be afraid to ask!
I have John James Applique and Embroidery needles available in a separate listing. These are the needles I recommend to my students. Your hand stitches will improve when you use quality needles!
