Penny Rug done .....


This UFO is from a BOM shared by  Melody  last year..... It is her Home Sweet Home Penny Rug and I have finally finished off the last touches having spent the last couple of days frantically sewing it .... 

I chose to back the rug with a large piece of felt
(well shrunken woollen blanket)
and used some well loved kitchen utensils to trace my circles


... all done...


We have rather a boring storage box (grandiechildren toys) in the lounge room


.... perfect .....


I used a lovely old linen tablecloth for the main piece and the felt is all old woollen blankets which have been felted ...  some I even found in the 'dog blankets' section.... 

This was a UFO from last year... glad to get it done... now that means I get to start a new project.....

Righto, Gotto Go... tracing to do....

Great job Fiona! Not only do you have a finish but you also used up some recycled wool. It looks nice and colorful on the toy chest.

Fiona, I love the fact that you have recycled and wow how delightful. Very cheery and perfect for the wooden toy box.

Fiona, that rug is beautiful. I love your wooden spoon shaped pennies on the edge.

A nice finish.
