Penny Rugs

In the 19th century, homemakers used scraps of wool or felted wool to make decorative table toppers, mats, pillows and wall hangings. Penny rugs are a type of folk art where coins or coin shapes are used as templates. The coin shapes are joined together with a blanket stitch. Although this techniques is called penny rug it is not usually used for rugs.
