Pin It Time to get on the bandwagon and make some mug rugs. There are so many free patterns floating around the web, it was a difficult decision to chose just one!
So I thought I would start with a simple pattern. I love some of the more complicated ones like this and this but those will have to wait until I am back home and have the time to fiddle with the designs and details of ones such as these.
For now I am happy with this one. I love the spring colors I chose and plan on making a few to leave with my Mom for her to use when I return home. She drinks a lot of tea throughout the day and these will be perfect to protect her side table or for outside on the bistro table.
It took no time at all.
First I cut out the required fabric pieces, then sewed them as Amy explained in her tutorial.
I ironed on a piece of interfacing between the layers to make it a little stiff so it would hold up well to washing instead of inserting the batting as she suggested.
A little bit of trimming, some more sewing and whammo it was finished!
I love how it turned out, so very easy and the fabrics to chose from are endless.
Have a great day and remember to give your loved ones a hug!
