I need practice…

with making these Mug Rugs! I thought I’d have a go tonight at making my first Mug Rug for the swap. I selected the fabrics and after tweeting whether or not I should use them or not, I decided to go ahead. I love the ladies on twitter for their honest opinions!


So, after cutting, sewing, ironing, sandwiching (lol, I don’t know the official term),
quilting and binding, I came up with this;

So there we have it, my first ever go at a Mug Rug and despite the dodgy corner (please don’t look too closely!)
I think it’s pretty damn good!

Just deciding now whether to keep it for myself and make better ones for the swap knowing how
long it took me and where I made a few mistakes! I’m seriously getting addicted to this quilting lark…
