Angela ~ More Wool Pennies

I've continued to work on wool pennies for a mat.  I have a wooden corner cupboard and I want to make a mat for each shelf, probably all different.  For my first one I plan to use a soft green burlap for the backing and earthy colors for the pennies.  I may also add tabs to the front to hang down, we'll see.
These are the pennies I've completed so far.  I do a few at a time so I don't get bored.
I cut the half dollar size then the quarter size and finish with the dime size.  I layer them and stitch through the center and tack between layers so they don't shift.  I'm loving the new wool felt I purchased, such great colors.  And it is not as fuzzy as the craft felt from Walmart (which is made from recycled plastic bottles, pretty cool.)

You are moving along fairly fast, even a few at a time. I like the autumn colored ones you've shown. That's a nice hand project.
