Apples are the perfect gift for a teacher at the end of the school year. This is a quick and easy little project that's sure to be appreciated by a teacher or by anyone. For an extra special touch for a younger child's teacher, you might have your child write a note on the back of the mug rug, or simply sign the back. The wonky gray background has a modern feel, but the apples are pure tradition - a bit of the best of both worlds. The pattern for this mug rug contains 3 pages of instructions, one page with a full size layout of the pattern, one page of templates, and a page of the foundation paper for the background. If you have any questions or comments, please send an email to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to see photos of your completed work in the completed projects section of this pattern page. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic quilting skills, basic foundation paper piecing skills.
