Penny rug sew along

Now I am in the mood to create a table rug for the fall. Want to join along? Good. Now, if you don't have any wool or it's just to difficult to cut into those fat quarters, never fear, we are going to use regular old craft felt! You can pick some up at Joannes, Wallyworld, Hancocks, etc. You may have some lurking in your sewing room or your neighbor has some you could take off her hands.
If you have to go to the store to buy some felt, make sure you get a square of orange, black, brown, green, yellow....colors associated with fall. If you want something very simple, just go for the colors you want to concentrate on.

You will also need some embroidery floss, black if you have it, a stapler, fabric scissors, paper scissors, embroidery needle, a sketch paper and pencil, and freezer paper.

Now, if blogger were behaving tonight I would have added a pic. But since we are not living in the real world, just take my word for the supplies needed. Great, now tune in tomorrow for more...go get your supplies ready~~~no, don't wash it!


  1. This is just the motivation I need to start with my felts..... (I keep procrastinating) THANKS..

  3. I will be going to JoAnn's today. How much 1 square of each color?

  4. Can't wait to see what you're up to!
