Folk lore attributes Wool Applique “penny rugs” to table rugs created with woolen fabrics using coins or pennies as the pattern template often seen on vintage pieces dating from the Civil War era. As with other folk-art, everyday life design motifs are popular on original rugs. Designs were stitched with simple blanket stitch and other embroidery stitches and finished with a tongue shaped border.

Bird Brain Designs’ Wool Applique penny rug projects are created with a whimsical approach to this traditional folk-art craft using 100% wool!

Bird Brain Designs offers you Patterns plus Handy Fabric Packets and Kits to complete the project. 
Designs include Everyday plus Christmas, Easter and Halloween pillows, wall hangings, ornaments, pin cushions and other needlework necessities.
