I just love making mug rugs! They are quick, easy and fun projects to make.
I saw Judith's (of Rags to Bags) gift for a friend of hers and I thought for sure I want to make one like this. I had also come across the pattern "Hexing Around the Block" at Freshly Pieced but I didn't think to keep it as a hexagon! Very clever.
I did a bit of hand stitching around the owl from the centre outwards, I used purple, green and pink embroidery thread.
So sofar I have made two mug rugs and hope to make more, I love trying to choose which colour combo's to go with.
I know which one is my favourite.... the orange and blue theme. For the above mug rug I simply machine stitched in the ditch.
How about you, any preference?
Have a good Sunday!
