What are you most proud of? I like the wave - it is made up of scraps of fabric and goes together really easily. I also quilted underneath the wave and it has made the wave stand slightly proud - I like that look as it adds another dimension to this little quilt.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a really quick and easy pattern. The trickiest bit is the eyes due to their size but you could embroider them or even use a fabric marker pen (just check it on a scrap of fabric before using on the finished item). Play around with fabrics and colours, try different combinations but most importantly, have fun.

Very clever and good sewing skills.

Thank you - this little mug rug was a joy to stitch. I love the wave and how it stands slightly proud.

I'm just getting started, still cutting out patterns. Then have to put adhesive on the back and iron it to my plain fabric then do all the stitching that it takes to make other people go .............AAAAAwwwwwww!! You inspire me. Thanks.

Strewth! What are you making? Wouldn't fusible webbing be easier?

06/22/2013 Flag

All my patterns use quick fuse applique and quick strip applique using fusible webbing. It makes the whole applique process quick and easy. Email me if you are new to quick fuse applique, whether making this project or one of your own and I will help anyway I can.

I am new to quick fuse....Is it like stitch witch?

06/29/2013 Flag

I have no knowledge of 'stitch witch'. All my patterns use fusible webbing which has a paper-side and a rough (glue) side. It normally comes in 45cm/18" width and you can buy it by the metre/yard. I use Bondaweb fusible webbing (it is also called Wonder Under or Vliesofix). Hope this helps. The pattern contains details of how to use the fusible webbing but it should also come with the packet.

If I can be of any further help just ask. Hope you have fun with the pattern.

Do you put the heat hold batting in this?

06/29/2013 Flag

I use normal batting for my mug rugs as I do not envisage hot pots or pans going onto them. Regular batting is fine for a cup or mug.

06/30/2013 Flag

If you are intending to put hot pans or pots onto any fabric mat then you should always use heat-resistant batting.
