Pattern Description:

Impress your friends and family with these colourful and easy-to-make Patchwork Christmas Mug Rugs. Each mug rug finishes at 10" x 6". They make the perfect hostess gift, teacher's gift and stocking stuffers for your loved ones. Make up a bunch in advance for last-minute gift giving this holiday season.

The pattern includes two fused applique designs (ornaments and trees) and instructions for using fabric scraps to make your own colourful patchwork fabric. Full-sized placement guides and a separate pattern page are provided. Detailed instructions, hints & tips, product recommendations and colour photos are provided throughout.

The first three items above are used in making the colourful Patchwork Fabric. If you wish, you can use scraps of cotton fabrics for the applique shapes instead of making your own fabric as shown in the samples.
