What are you most proud of? This is such a cheery mug rug - it just makes me smile every time I look at it. I also like that one pattern has two different outcomes - giving excellent value for money which is something I believe in. These gingerbread men are placed on a 10" x 6" background rectangle (this can be trimmed once quilting is complete). I quilted all the way around the gingerbread men which makes them plump up a little - I love this look.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used a permanent fabric marker to make the faces - this is a great option for a beginner or if you don't like embroidery but do test the marker on a scrap of fabric to make sure it suits the fabric you are using. (You can embroider the eyes and mouths very easily and the details are in the pattern.) Whether you are a beginner or experienced quilter this is a great little mug rug to give as a pressie or to put in the Christmas bazaar as a raffle prize.

Love all your pieces! Hoping to try some of these, as soon as I get my sewing machine fixed.

I plan on making one of these for a good friend of mine at church. She loves Gingerbread men! Thank you so much for the pattern.

You're welcome. What a lovely way to spread some joy. The pattern also comes with a cup applique so you can make a different mug rug for yourself.
