When I think of April and the showers that come in spring I picture children out in the rain, splashing in puddles wherever they can find them. These little silhouette mug rugs are the second in what seems to be turning into a series of children and pets at play. This pattern includes three pages of instructions with photos, templates for the children, puppies, and shoes, plus full size layouts of each of the mug rugs. The layouts show placement of applique pieces and the embroidered lines that add the details of puddles, splashes, and shoelaces. I had so much fun making these. They go together quickly and add a bit of traditional whimsy to a coffee table or desktop. 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, applique, and embroidery skills.
