When I am looking for a fun project , that doesn't take a ton of time, I simply hop on over to The Patchsmith's Craftsy page to find a mug rug pattern to make!
|Honey Bee Mug Rug design by Amanda, The Patchsmith|
Made by Susie's Sunroom
|Some simple Blanket Stitches and "bee trails" stitched by machine|
The mug rug was so much fun to create, using scraps for the raw edge applique. I was able to use my Topaz sewing machine for the stitch work. (Even the word "honey.")
|Such a sweet design|
|The back side was a bee and hive fabric.|
As much fun as it is to make a mug rug, it is even more fun to give them away as a gift! I know this is one of the reasons that I am so addicted to them!!
Well, it is time for me to buzz on over to work on my February 19 th project....
Remember, the Hugs and Kisses Blog Hop starts on February 12 !
