Penny Rug Update

Pin It Some of you have asked about my penny rug. The material is wool except for the little plaid pennies on the outside. I picked up this kit at the local Goodwill store for 99 cents and thought it was a great way to experiment making one.

I am having alot of fun with it and will definitely make more. Here is a great link to not only show wonderful pictures but also the history of how the penny rugs came to be and she also has some links for patterns.

I suggest giving it a try as not only are they decorative but easy to make!

Soon, I will have another great easy and frugal idea to make for gifts.

Have a great evening everyone! =)


  1. Those are wonderful! I us checked out the link..I have hordes of regular felt that could be used for wall hangings & tags as ornaments, eye glass cases..oh no! I'm afraid you may have created a monster!

  2. if it doesn't glue, staple or paint on anything I can't do it! Ha! But this might be worth a try!



Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading all of them. Have a wonderful day.
