Old Fashioned Favorites Penny Rug

Old Fashioned Favorites Penny Rug

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • blanket stitch, french knots, back stitch

Pattern Description:

Old Fashioned Favorites was designed while thinking about ice cream and where it comes from.

The different colored cows represent the different old fashioned flavors of vanilla, chocolate, butter pecan and maple walnut ice cream.

The background is a waffle cone. And the little circles between the cows are sprinkles. Some people have referred to the circles as being cow pies...... but not on my ice cream.

This pattern makes a small candle mat penny rug, about 8 inches (20 cm) across.

This is one of 13 patterns I sell for penny rugs.
