"Penny" refers to a round circle of wool,
traditionally cut using coins or a "penny" as a template.
These circles were a wonderful way to use scraps of wool
to "make something from nothing".
These Penny Rugs measure 7.5in. (19.05cm) round.
Penny Rugs can be used as candle mats or as a "coaster"
to set your mug of coffee or hot chocolate on, as shown...
When working with wool, I save all of my "scraps", even the very small pieces, and store them in a box. Scraps are perfect for making penny rugs, because even those very small pieces can be made into pennies.
