Last Wednesday our quilt group had a Mug Rug exchange - and I can show you the mug rug I did and the one I got! We all picked a name and sewed our Mug Rug as a secret surprise. The lady I did mine for could not come to the meeting, so I just can hope she likes what I did for her. As I liked my woven stocking, I did a similar thing - and after the weaving, I browsed through my novelty fabrics, and YES, it's a good thing to have a stash! I found a cup and a cookie, appliqued them on and voila - the result was a cute Mug Rug!
And here's the one I got! We were allowed to tell a bit about what we liked and what not- and Sabine did a great job! Look what I got - strong contrasts, bright colours, flower fabric, stripes - what more could I ask for! And yes, she added hand-stitching! I guess I'm in love ... Thank you, Sabine !!
