Pattern Description:

Simply patched hearts floating on a dark background - one in stark black and white with a touch of red, one in patriotic colors. The light, floral background on the third mug rug gives it a totally different look.

Mug rugs make such quick little decorative projects and they are just the right size to hold a cup or glass of your favorite something to drink and a small snack. Make one or make a bunch, and toss these colorful hearts onto your desk or table top for an instant splash of color. Tucked into a cup or slipped into an envelope and dropped in the mailbox, this little patchwork heart makes a lovely gift for someone special.

This project makes up very quickly, and the pattern is very detailed. There are complete instructions for making the pieced heart and background, instructions for how to use fusible web, a full size template for the heart, and a full size layout plan. Helpful photos and diagrams are strategically placed throughout the pattern.
