Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
This piece is a handmade penny rug candle mat that I created from real wool, wool felt and craft felt. This is my original design that is all hand sewn. No machine work. All of the pieces are hand cut for a real primitive feel.
Penny rugs became popular in the late 1800's as decorative accents for tables and beds. Penny coins were actually used as templates to make the circles, giving the craft its popular name.
There are three real wool soft yellow flowers ( I felted the wool myself) each with two layers of petals and green stems and leaves sitting on a rust colored background. Two little pumpkins are sitting underneath the flowers. Twenty tabs with black pennies on top go all around the outside edge of the rug. Lots of hand sewn details on this piece.
The back of the piece is done in the same rust colored felt as the top. The last picture is of the back of the rug.
The penny rug measures approximately 14 inches wide by 14 inches high (including the tabs).
