Mrs Stuart, long time resident of Rosewood New South Wales, made this domestic wagga in about 1940. Mrs Stuart made many wagga rugs for general use in the home and always used old clothing and furnishing materials. This one was made in a hurry for her son Malcolm to take camping. Malcolm donated it to the Pioneer Women's Hut. It is occasionally displayed in the museum.


The top is a wholecloth, coarse, bluish cotton, furnishing weight material, probably part of a curtain. The backing is half the same material and half is part of a brown travelling rug. The padding is two heavy pieces of coarse jute bag roughly sewn together with twine.
