Mug Rugs are for Gifting

>> Sunday, November 26, 2017

The season of gifting is upon us! I hope all my American readers enjoyed the Thanksgiving weekend. I know some of us have been hitting the Black Friday sales too - remember tomorrow is Cyber Monday and I do have a few downloadable patterns out there in the  cyber shop;)


fussy cut mug rugs

Last week was my first holiday gifting opportunity this year at my Quilt Guild's Christmas dinner. The lemon meringue pie was amazing! And so were the mug rugs! Everyone made two and wrapped them up to swap. I made two using last year's Cotton and Steel Christmas fabric, fussy cutting these cute glasses that remind me of my Aunt.

I added a thin pink border between the prints and simply quilted around the glass to make it a little puffy.

I wanted to make them reversible and decided to use a rainbow of selvages! I liked these almost too much to giveaway - a good clue that they will be well received :)

Then I had fun decorating the gift bag; you guessed it, more selvages!

I used a glue stick to adhere the selvages then tied the bag with another selvage. I have a few more little bags like this that just might get the selvage treatment too.


With Joy,
