i thought I would like to make Mug Rugs for Christmas gifts this year, does anyone have a suggestion for an online resource where I can find patterns or suggest a good book that I could buy
I thought this might be the best help for you, most of these are free.
Hayley, Here is a tutorial on how to make mug rugs or snow flakes for Christmas Marianne
Thanks Zoe, that's great. Mug rug planning here I come :-)
Thanks Zoe... Let the mug rug planning commence
Thanks Marianne, I just watched this it's really cool :-) I'm gonna definitely give it a try :-) xx
Have fun making the snow flakes or mug rugs. I have made about 10 patriotic ones and I'm going to make some for Halloween and for Christmas snow flakes to send to my High School friend Elke and my friend Rita.
Hayley, I made some different mug rugs just using different blocks. I haven't really looked for a pattern on line but it would be fun to practice single blocks and then border them - plus you can practice quilting on them. I have made quite a few this year. Some with the log cabin block and I took a rectangular piece to the left that I put stars on for the 4th of July... I think the friendship block would do great for this. Have fun!
I'm going to enjoy making them I think, they look adorable. I'll be posting pics when they are done xx
I started out with simple quilt blocks, then graduated to simple candle mats, now I use either a 7 x 9 or 10 x15" rectangle and duplicate a picture or create a picture on it. I have made so many mug rugs this year. I've made seasonal ones, ones for specific people, birthday ones, and my favorite...snowman ones. The more you make the more ideas you will get and the more fun you will have.
That's a great idea, thanks Thea. I'm feeling all inspired now :-) xx
Thanks Linda I really hadn't thought of that :-)
