Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo June Campers Mug Rugs (pair) Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/pattern/quilting/home-decor/june-campers-mug-rugs-pair/54123 What are you most proud of? I really struggled with some of the design elements. How to make the girl with the fish look jubilant was the first challenge. Much harder was the boy's mug rug. A naughty dog, a stinky skunk - what to do, how to show it? i do hope it came across clearly. My husband laughed when he saw the finished mug rugs, so I have hopes that they're okay.

Q&A with K Lee 2Strings

abanabana asked:
Oh, I love the skunk! How very funny!
K Lee 2Strings answered:
In retrospect it is funny, but I think I heard a few new words when the neighbor's dog returned to camp. lol
desna asked:
Oh I adore these and you have mastered the little girl looking jubilant, even the dog is! Just wonderful and made all the more wonderful by you sharing you childhood memories:)
K Lee 2Strings answered:
Thank you!
Awran asked:
"you have hopes that they are ok"? Good lord, I'm green with envy, but smiling......they are OK and then some more.
K Lee 2Strings answered:
You are so sweet! Thank you.
LaurenDM asked:
I was searching for something else entirely and laughed when I scrolled past these in the search results. How adorable! Yes, you've captured it! What appliqu method do you use?
K Lee 2Strings answered:
Thank you! I'm so glad these made you laugh! That's what they were intended to do. I use fusible web and a machine zigzag stitch on these. I've tried many variations on the machine stitching, but for these babies, I seem to have settled on a very tight zigzag, almost a satin stitch, but not quite. I'm not sure where I was with the experimentation when I made the pattern for these.
