In the 1800s, many homes were decorated with “Penny Carpets”, made from miss-matched fabric cut into circles. Patches were then layered and stitched together to make a large piece. Students create a Penny Carpet with fabric scraps. Each section is sewed to felt swatches, then joined to make a larger piece of art.
