Name of website or photo Two Owls Mug Rug
What materials did you use? Aside from back and wadding largest piece is 9" x 3.5". Most are from my scrap box.
What are you most proud of? The night-time version is all hand stitched. I love that when I quilted either side of the branch it puffed the branch up a little to make it look rounded. I also love the little bird in the nest.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time when placing the pieces for the applique. I appliqued the owl bodies, flowers and leaves initially (tucking the feet under the bodies). Once these were stitched in place I then appliqued all the little details (wings, beaks, eyes, bird nest, etc). I placed the full-size applique sheet next to the mug rug on the ironing board to make sure I got everything in the right place. You could add all sorts of details - sequins, braid, ribbon. Whatever takes your fancy. Just remember though that a mug will sit on top and you don't want it to be unsteady.
