More mug rugs ....

so, last night I whipped up two more mug rugs.

Here's the first one:

I really like this fabric from Aneela Hoey called Sherbet Pips. I get relaxed just by looking at the little girl on a swing. I do like how this mug rug turned out, I'm just not sure about how practical it will be with all these light colored fabrics.

My second mug rug is this one:

I went ahead and finished binding on my sewing machine instead of hand stitching. I have to say, it was much quicker, but I don't really like the way it looks. Next time I will be back to hand stitching. Who knows, I might just rip out the whole thing and redo it, probably the best option since it's going to be bugging me every time I look at it.

Until next time, keep making beautiful things.

Mug rug frenzy

This was my first mug rug ever and I completely fell in love. Mug rugs are soooo much fun. I really like that it's a quick project, using up a lot of my scraps, and it' wonderful for trying out new techniques. 

Talking of new techniques, my first attempt to try ticker tape ended up as another mug rug. I really liked the way it turned out and a much bigger ticker tape quilt followed, of course, but on that a little later.
Here are a few more pictures of mug rugs I made:

And I'm still not done, next week is teacher appreciation week and I've decided to make mug rugs for my kids teachers. I see lots of mug rugs in my near future, which is perfectly fine by me.
Until next time, Svetlana
