Spring Chicken MugRug

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The simplicity of the design and the ease with which it went together. This is another mug rug pattern that will work in all different colourways and uses up some of those scraps we hate to throw away. I have made it counry but it would look good in modern colourways too - this is a versatile little pattern. What advice would you give someone starting this project? You will spend more time choosing fabrics than you will making this mug rug. I quilted around the chicken but not the eggs because I prefer this look. You could add ribbon trim to the eggs or fussy cut them for a truly unique look.

I have buying these adorable little patterns because even I can make them as little gifts. So adorable, plus it helps me with learning to applique with some pieces much neater. Thank you. Adorable, adorable...
The Patchsmith answered:
They are great for gifts aren't they? I think mug rugs are perfect to learn new skills, try out different fabric combinations and to make something practical and useful.
