Pennyrug Of Many Colors
Finished Size 12 1/2" x 21 1/2"
2 pieces of wool for the background and the backing – each piece needs to measure 14” x 23”
10 pieces of wool that measure 8” square – this is what I used and this amount is more than enough wool. You will need to cut 104 small leaf Shapes for this pattern – each leave shape measures 1” x 2”
25 yards of embroidery floss. I used 2 strands at a time to stitch with. I chose
To use hand dyed floss from The Gentle Art for the light colored pennyrug in the “Harvest Basket” shade. For the dark pennyrug I used hand dyed floss from Weeks Dye Works in the shade called “Onyx”.
