I made a couple of mug rugs...
I love how this one turned out... I made it as a gift for someone. The colors in this one are so bright and cheerful!
These didn't take very long to make, but it took me forever (ok, I am exaggerating) to decide on the fabrics for this one. I get a little neurotic when it comes to picking fabrics for gifts. I want it to be just right!
The fabrics are Full Moon Polka Dot in Cherry from Amy Butler's Lotus Collection; Bouquet in Red, Posie in Grey and Posie in Turquoise (backing) from Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy Collection.
**Post Update - This mug rug is now available in my Etsy shop. You can view the listing here: Flea Market Fancy Mug Rug
These are 5" by 8". Perfect size for a beverage and snack.
This one I made for myself. Every time I sit down to sew, I look for a place to put my drink and realize that I don't have one.
I love the colors in this one. The bright aqua color of the Organic Park Circles is so soothing.
The fabrics are Boho Chevron in Eggplant by Annette Tatum for Free Spirit, Pencil Sweater Check from Little Apples by Aneela Hoey for Moda, and Modern Whimsey Organic Park Circles by Laurie Wisbrun for Robert Kaufman.
The fabric with the medallions and the backing are from my scraps and are unknowns.
I am still sewing away on my I Spy quilt. I am still piecing...and piecing....and piecing. I should have the top put together in the next day or two.
What project are you working on?
**New update: To make your own mug rugs you can find a pattern for these designs and other variations listed in my shop here - Bundle of Mug Rugs.
Have a great Wednesday!
