I love reading your comments so far….especially about your stitching buddies and how excited your all are about spending time together stitching!!! It is the best!!!
Day 10- Our newest product…Pre-cut Pennies (Circles) in many sizes and packaged in 3 different amounts…
We have two color option for now…black or assorted colored
We have them in packs of 25, 50 or 100…Those are the the option we have right now but we will continue to expand our offerings.
We also will be sending along a guide sheet of penny mat configurations and sizes that work well together with any purchase during this event. Here are three different mat I made using the the assorted and black pennies…
For instance the penny mat on the top right consists of 39 stitched total pennies…black 2 1/2″, assorted 2″ and 1″ They are also backed in black…to you would need 100- 2 1/2″ black, 50 2″ and 50-1″ assorted pennies to make this mat.
The bottom hex penny mat would take 50 assorted 3″, 25- 1 1/2′ black and 25- 3/4″ assorted pennies to make the 19 stitched total pennies.
The mat on the left that is almost finished…seems I was adding the last row to it…needs 16 stitched total pennies-sizes 50-3 1/2″ black-25-2 1/2″ assorted and 25-1″ assorted…
If you want to know what sizes look good together you can always get your circle template out and draw your own configuration of sizes…and then color plan. I know you are a very creative bunch and will make wonderful things!
I also use thicker threads for these pennies…8 and 5wts Valadani work the best if you like to see the stitching as shown in my pennies below…We will also be doing some You Tube /Facebook videos on stitching and backing these pennies…So exciting!!!
You also know I love fusible web on my pennies…but I know some do not want it…so we came up with the best alternative…we have cut fusible pennies…the fusible doesn’t necessarily have to extend out the the outer most edge…as long as it keeps the pennies in place is all that matters…for the smaller pennies 1/2 & 3/4″ a dab of glue will work as well…I strongly suggest the fusible for as hard as you try the pennies will slip/move while stitching if nothing is used.
3/4″ for pennies 1″-1 1/4″ and 1 1/2″
1 1/2″ for pennies 2 & 2 1/2″
2 1/2″ for pennies 3 & 3 1/2″
