Table Runner Penny Rug Technique Grey / by FireHorseTextiles

Shared by FireHorse in the Fabric Crafts

Product Description:

This unique and stylish table runner is made using the traditional technique of 'penny rug' making. Small circles of wool (or wool mix) fabrics are hand sewn on top of each other, then mounted on a base fabric using blanket stitch. Finally, a backing piece and label are attached to the reverse.

In this piece I have used repurposed, and 'auction found' fabrics made from wool or wool mix. The base fabric is shaded from mid to dark grey. The 'pennies' alternate between yellow or mid grey at the base and in the middle, with navy or navy plaid centres.
