Penny Rug Table Runners...


I cannot resist Penny Rugs !
So easy to make and they are packed with Old World Charm.



This Penny Rug Table Runner measures
31in. long x 12in. wide (78.74cm x 30.48cm)
and is made from 100% wool fabric.



The Pennies have been hand cut and applied with a blanket stitch.  These Penny Rugs have been finished with a Pulled Thread edge.



I like to match my embroidery floss to the color of the wool being used, however you can also use a contrasting floss color throughout the project.

  5. A lovely project to have as 'stitching-on-the-go'. Easily transportable I should think, and what better than blanket stitch the keep eager hands busy.
    Thank you for sharing this.
