Can you tell what I am attempting to make????

Hey people- how's it going?
Well, I have loved the penny rug for a long time now and over the break I did a lot of Youtube and blog research on how to make one. This is my absolute first attempt, so be nice.

I bought 2 wool blazers and a wool skirt from Sal Army. I washed them in hot water and dried them. I ironed them (with a towel on top to prevent the shine.) I ironed on freezer paper and traced my 3 different circles. My smallest is 1 inch then 2 inches then 2 1/2 inches. I got a lot better at sewing them with practice. I am hoping to be done by the weekend. If so, I will post the finished product.


  1. Have fun! I posted a couple days ago about penny rugs... I've been cutting the circles with my cuttlebug machine and it was a snap. Can't wait to see your finished project! Take care, Kimberly

  2. Looks like your off to a great start, love the colors!

  3. Just wanted to say hello and that I love the colors for your penny rug. I have just finished one-my first attempt also!! I found it difficult to get complete circles, I must google the cuttlebug machine as I have never heard of it. Have a good day, Shazy x

  4. I admire your attempt at making a penny rug. I have wanted to for a long time but have just never taken the steps to get started. I can't wait to see what yours looks like. Best of luck to you.

  5. Can't wait to see how this turns out!.....I just made a candlemat last nite while watching a movie...I am going to start on a larger runner tonite while at work.

  6. This looks awesome! And I love your matching border!
