I went digging though storage boxes and found 2 kits left from the shop. The first is a sewing kit pattern from Karyn Lord of Wool and Whimseys. Karyn doesn't have a website but you can find her patterns lots of places. The local place for all things penny rug related here is in Kennebunk, Maine, called Camp Wool. They have tons of wool, and so many patterns! I went there for the first time a few weeks back and I will definitely have to visit again, after I finish the kit I bought there. 😊
The first thing I made is a hand sewing kit and pin cushion. The sewing kit opens up and has a large pocket, a split smaller pocket and a heart to hold threaded needles.
I had so much fun making this that I thought I would make a penny rug next.
I've got all the tongues backed with Wonder Under and cut, ready to go. I have been working on the penny rug itself, and I'm almost done with the stitching on it.
I could not get a photo without the cat. Every time I set it on the table he jumped up and sat down. After several tries, I gave up. If you look close enough you can see the dog is stitched but the flowers need some still.
Here's a better shot of my helper, Nosey. He was adopted, and came with the name. It definitely fits!
