PENNY RUGS: ”In the 1800s, women would use scraps of wool or wool felt from old clothing and hats to create designs for mats or rugs. They would make circles using coins as a template. Each piece was then stitched in blanket stitch fashion.
I just tried my hand at a penny rug and a candle mat (pictured below). These are so beautiful and simple, yet time consuming to make.
Two new Penny Rugs and Quilts I’ve made over the last few years.
