Woven Strips Mug Rug
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Mod, Whimsical, Funky, Cute, Casual
6" Charm Squares; cotton thread; scotch tape; batting.
What was your inspiration?
After determining the maximum use of fabric for Dresden Plate blades using charm squares I ended up with a pile of one inch pinked edge strips. I wanted to use these in some kind of small project and designed a basket weave Mug Rug.
What are you most proud of?
I hate to waste fabric, I used strips that are too narrow to use with a seam. The raw edges are worked into the basket weave design or caught with quilting in the binding. I used scotch tape to hold the woven strips together when adding the last two edge strips. Even the binding is done using (trapped) raw edge strips. Everything is machine stitched.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Let your creativity flow. I love the design process!
