NV-18 Hand-made Wool Penny Mat
Made in the USA
In earlier times, precious scraps of fabric were saved from clothing, blankets and the like for projects such as making Penny Rugs. Coins of diminishing sizes were used as patterns to trace circular shapes, known as "Pennies." These pennies were then laid in a pleasing pattern and blanket-stitched together to make runners, decorative covers and wall hangings. Our Wool Penny Mat measures 18" dia. Made in Maine in 2001.
