Pigskin Mug Rug

from 2strings
(7) Name: 'Quilting : Pigskin Mug Rug
Pigskin Mug Rug
Pigskin Mug Rug

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic quilting, Basic fusible web applique, Simple paper foundation piecing

Pattern Description:

I needed a stocking stuffer for my teenage grandson, and finding a masculine mug rug pattern can be a bit of a trick. The colors and theme of this one should appeal to any football fan, whether male or female.

This mug rug whips up quickly with very simple paper foundation piecing and a quickly fused football applique. Easy zigzag stitching around the applique pieces, a bit of embroidery for the laces, and it's done!

Toss this on a desk for a bit of color and fun, or place it on a table in front of the TV. Top it with a snack and something to drink, lean back and enjoy the game.

The pattern contains full size templates for the football, a photocopy of the layout, and a full size paper piecing pattern. Instructions are clear and accompanied by photographs.

Instructions for paper piecing are not included. If you are unfamiliar with this piecing technique you can find numerous tutorials online.
