It's a great way to accent those wooden bread bowls or candles. It can also be used as a chair pad for your primitive childrens chairs. Place it on a coffee table or side table for instant color!
This penny rug is made using 100% wool, some of it is overdyed for a more primitive look. The background is black, the star is an overdyed gold/ brown, very primitive. The background circle is a deep burgundy. The tongues are black and topped with various shades of deep burgundy, brown/gold, and cream/brown. They are stitched in place with floss using a primitive whip stitch. Everything else is stitched in place with floss using a blanket stitch. (Primitive stitches are purposely uneven) The back fabric is black with tiny stars and was secured in place using a blanket stitch around the entire rug.
The penny rug measures 12 inches to the ends of the togues. It's the perfect size to fit just about anywhere!!
