I promised a tutorial on these little cuties and it's coming! Remember in my Custom Rug post I showed you the rug my 87 year mother made? Well, Mom's been sick, she's in the hospital right now, so I'm kinda, sorta busy. (and a little pooped) I started these penny purses last week. I will be sharing the construction of them with everyone. I just have to get Mom sorted out first. She may be ready to do some stitching of her own, although I ordered a T.V. for her and now she's very busy!
Penny Purse Tutorial, to begin.....find an old zipper, felted wool and a nice lining piece, cotton or a blend, (make sure it's prewashed). Cut your wool and lining to 9 1/2" long by 4" wide (24.5 cm x 10 cm) Make a few 1 inch (2.5 cm) and 1/2" (13mm) pennies from some felted scraps, find some strong thread and meet up with me later.
