Handbag Accessories

Penny rugs are made from felted wool.  Wool fabric will shrink and fluff when agitated in hot, then cold water.  Felted wool stays together and doesn't shred.  Cut the wool according to the pattern.  Pieces are stitched using perle cotton or embroidery floss.  A blanket stitch is often used to applique the shapes.

The term "Penny Rug" came from using a large penny years ago to trace and make a round shape.

This pattern makes a set of accessories to carry in your purse: an eyeglass case, a cheque book cover, a tissue holder, and a notebook cover.  These would make great gifts.  Included in the pattern are the list of supplies, stitches used, wool requirements, instructions and tips.
