Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic quilting skills, fusible web applique

Pattern Description:

It's September and the children are back in school. This makes for some very long, lonely days for the pups they leave at home.

The boy is off to school on his scooter, but his dog is tethered so he can't follow. So sad to be left behind. The girl's pup has decided that this is the moment for a tug-of-war. Is the pup only playing, or is she thinking that stealing the backpack may prevent her human friend from leaving?

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.
