Penny Rug with Watermelon and Strawberry class at Landis Valley
Learn the art of penny rug applique as you make a 36" long scalloped wool rug. The piece incorporates a whimsical watermelon and strawberry design using four different stitches. As you work, you'll learn how to cut out your applique pieces and position them on your base, what wool is best and how to prepare it, and what kind of thread and needle to use.
