|Here are some details about my project:|
|Style||Casual, Romantic, Whimsical|
What materials did you use? I made two mug rugs and used 1 fat quarter for the appliques and binding, half a fat quarter for the backing, two 5" charms for embellishments and batting, along with Steam A Seam II Lite for the raw-edged appliques. All of these were picked from my stash.
What are you most proud of? I'm very proud of the cuteness of the mug-rugs. I am an amateur at applique and was still successful at making these mug-rugs.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a transparency of the layout guide on page 2 of the pattern to assist with placement of the pattern pieces. This worked really well for me. Use raw-edged applique for the entire piece or needle-turned applique for the larger pieces and raw-edged applique for the small pieces. I found it was easiest and fastest to use a running stitch for the embroidery for 'Cuppa Tea' and the tea pouring out of the teapot. On my first mug-rug I used a daisy chain for 'Cuppa Tea' and that took too long and was a little hard on my aging eyesight.
