What are you most proud of? I like the fabric choices. They ae perfect for my father. Also the stars worked very well in felt - much easier to sew.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use felt for the stars as fabric has a tendency to fray. Play with fabric combinations. Alternatively you could cut the letters out of one square of fabric for speed and efficiency. If you want to create a named mug rug then you need the Patchsmith Applique Alphabet which includes upper and lower case alphabets and a whole alphabet of mug rug letters (see the Patchsmith's pattern store for details).

Very clever! When is Father's Day in England?

16th June this year (2013) - it was created in the USA so a lot of countries celebrate it on the same day - but not all - some celebrate it slightly earlier.
