Last year, I made a few mug rugs as presents,
they were cute and successful,
both from a sewing and receiving point of view!
Of course I made some more,
but there are not going to the same people,
no need to worry my friends!
One of my favorites is this one:
little hexagons appliqued to the background.
You might have seen this one earlier here.
This year, instead of stitching the hexagons together, I used wonder under first,
then cut the shape and appliqued them to the background.
With invisible thread, I zigzagged on all the hexagons.
After that I finished the mug rug as usual, and quilted then diagonally.
I also reused the same pattern from last year,
in a very traditional red Christmas/poinsettia fabric.
And it goes so well with the red mittens!
Another addition to the mug rug is of course,
the coffee cozy!
I talked about it during the 12 days of mitten: day 5,
the perfect teacher gift!
And finally, I came up with a simple design:
just bands of background fabric with a print in between.
I think it turned out quite nice!
I am so ready for a nice cup of tea and a slice of panettone!
