August Plunge Mug Rugs

from 2strings

August Plunge Mug Rugs
August Plunge Mug Rugs
August Plunge Mug Rugs

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic quilting skills, fusible web applique

Pattern Description:

August can be miserably hot and muggy. On some days there are only two logical choices: stay indoors in an air-conditioned room or head for the nearest pool.

These little silhouette characters know how to have the most fun cooling off in the pool. You definitely don't start by testing the water with a toe. Absolutely not! You need to plunge right in, making the biggest splash you can!

This pattern contains four pages of instructions with photos. It includes full size templates for the children, puppies, and other pieces, as well as full size layouts of each of the mug rugs. The layouts show placement of applique pieces and the lines where embroidery is used.

You will find that these mini-quilts are very easy to make. The sewing goes quickly, and the mug rugs will add a bit of traditional whimsy to a coffee table or desktop.

I would love to see photos of your completed work in the completed projects section of this pattern page.
