tea mats, or more mug rugs

For Christmas I received some sewing books,
and one of them is "Sew Illustrated" by Mini Kim.
Her blog Minki's Work Table is such as inspiration.

Of course I had to make something right away.
So I sewed 2 cute mug rugs, or tea mats as they are called in the book!


I could not help myself : I used Liberty of London with my linen!

They are pretty fast and easy: trace, iron, cut, iron, stitch...



Then a little hand stitch around the perimeter with embroidery floss,
and voila: ready for tea!


I think the macarons are my favorite.

I need to make a few more, luckily I have lots of little pieces of Liberty of London fabrics,
begging to be stitched into cute little things...

Happy sewing!

  3. You always inspire me with all of your gorgeous sewing projects! I am going to have to try something like this sometime. :) I don't think mine are going to look as beautiful as yours though! :)
