I am really enjoying making penny mats. I love the way I can watch my favorite shows while blanket stitching. I would like to show you my latest penny mats I have finished. This rust one is done with wool from a coat that I cut and washed in hot water. The pennies I purchase online. You can buy them really inexpensive rather than spend the time to cut them. There are a many nice shops that carry their own wool and sell them already cut. This way you can purchased a good amount of pennies to do a few penny mats for a low price. You also receive a nice color selection. The crow can be easily designed cut and blanket stitched. The other is done with gray wool. I purchase wool felt sheets in colors to design and cut out rose buds. I added a penny in the middle. This mat can be added to any décor. I hope you have as much fun as I am having making them.
