Penny Rug

I went to a fantastic shop in Gilmanton, NH called Badger Brook Farm. She has the most beautiful dyed wools plus patterns, flannels, punch needle, threads, yarn and gorgeous finished pieces on the walls. No website but worth the trip if you are in NH. She has a lot of kits and this was a small penny rug kit. The pieces are already cut into circles and have a fusible web already on one side so you can iron the little pieces to the big pieces and they don't move when you are doing the blanket stitch. I put it under a candle. It was fun to make.


  1. I love it! Sounds really easy to put together too. My kind of kit!

  2. Lovely! I'm just about to attempt my own penny rug but didn't think about the fusible web, great idea.

    Just a quick question too - did you whip the blanket stitches together to attach the individual pennies? I haven't been able to find any specific information about joining the pennies together, but I'm assuming that's how it's done.

  3. Very cute, I'll get to see it soon ;)
