Shipping to United States: Free

Penny Rug Welcome pattern measures 16" x 24". A 4" x 6" photo is included. Choose the foundation fabric you prefer in the options box. The rug is for display only and not included in this listing.

This is one of my favorites. Everyone needs a Welcome Rug and this design works in rustic, primitive and modern homes. It's an interpretation of the old applique design using different sizes and colors of wool circles. It is a simple pattern and a good one to use up a lot of small pieces of wool or leftover strips to achieve the colorful design.
I hooked it with a #8 cut, using a mottled old gold hand dyed wool for the background behind the red letters. Then just pulled from my basket of leftover strips to hook up the rest.
The closeup photo gives you a better idea of the variety of darks I used around the pennies and some of the color combinations.

The raw edges of the foundation fabric have been serged to prevent raveling while hooking. I have hand drawn the design with 4" borders surrounding to make it fit on most lap frames or hoops.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Custom and personalized orders

    Please feel free to contact me about special orders by clicking on the "request a custom order" button. I have a lot of inventory that is not listed.

    If you are looking for a specific color or texture, I will be happy to check my inventory. If you are able to send a photo, that is a great help to me in understanding what you are looking for.

    Special Orders are non returnable. Wool Kits and Wool Packs that have been cut in strips for rug hooking are not refundable.

    Designs and patterns that have been customized and/or personalized cannot be returned.

    Which Backing Fabric should I choose?

    Cotton Monks Cloth is 100% cotton woven with two warp threads and two weft threads has 12 x 13 holes per inch. It is great for hooking with all cuts of wool, from fine to primitive cuts. It is less expensive than primitive linen.

    Primitive linen is 100% linen, the most durable backing fabric. It is more expensive than other backing fabrics. The evenly spaced weave of 12 x 12 threads per inch makes it great for all primitive cuts, #7 and wider.
    Beginners usually have an easier time hooking with linen.

    Both are fine and long lasting choices for the backing to support and make your hooked rug durable. I use both types, but usually choose linen for larger projects.

    Do you refund shipping overage charges?

    Yes, if the difference is $3.00 or more. Etsy calculations, especially on orders with multiple items, can add up to more than the actual shipping. I will let you know when your order is ready to ship if you will be receiving a shipping refund.

    Lovely detail and I look forward to making a rug for my new house with this.

    Perfect! Thanks so much for the quick delivery and free shipping!! I can't wait to get started!

    Looks just like I ordered...arrived quickly and with a well photographed "top sheet" showing the finished rug.
