Penny Rug

Penny Rug

pennyrugThis cute little rug is adapted from a vintage technique that started in the 1800’s, where scraps of wool from blankets or clothing were cut out using a penny or circular template (hence the name). These round sections were then stitched with the blanket stitch, often with a penny in the middle to keep the fabric flat.  This decorative piece can be used as a small table or dresser matte. It is made from simple ingredients, and easy embroidery stitches.
