What are you most proud of? When I was designing this pattern I didn't realise just how versatile it would prove to be. This pattern can be used for any style or taste and is the perfect mug rug to make for the holidays or as a gift. It is suitable for men, women and children. You could add patches of embroidery or cross-stich, cartoon prints, stripes, checks or florals. Make it modern or country or pretty. There is no end to the choice of fabric and each mug rug will turn out unique and individual.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I cut a few extra patches so that I could play around with the combination of colours and patterns. If adding ticker-tape patches to a dark background I like to use a thread that co-ordinates with the background. But if I am adding patches to a lighter background then I use a thread that co-ordinates with the patches. Try both - see which you prefer. More than anything, have fun with this lovely little pattern - play around with colour and design and make presents for family, friends and work colleagues from your fabric scraps.

This is one of my all-time most favorite Patchsmith mug rug patterns! It's so versatile, and it's really fun to make, using a bit of fussy cutting, or not. These prints just go together to make a gorgeous Christmas message mug rug...awesome!
