Now, let's get to this fun tutorial I am going to share with you today! I actually sewed up this darling Mug Rug months ago, and sort of forgot about it! I was cleaning out my sewing room, and realized I never shared this little lovely with you guys! So today, I am going to share how I made this simple, and cute mug rug and give you the free downloadable pattern.
1 - 7.5" x 8.5" piece of background fabric (white)
1 - 10" x 12" piece of fabric for backing
Step 1: Print out pattern and cut out pattern pieces.
Step 2: Out of charm pack, cut out 8 - 2.5" squares. Sew squares together in a 2 x 8 layout.
Step 3: Pick out fabrics you want for your tree. Iron on the fusible web (according to package directions) onto the pieces you will use for your tree. Trace pattern pieces onto fabric and then cut out pieces.
Step 4: Layout your tree onto your background fabric. Iron them in place.
Step 5: Sew your background piece to your patchwork piece.
Step 7: Trim off excess batting and backing and then bind your mug rug! You can find my binding tutorial here.
And that's it! These cute little things are so fun to whip up and would make really cute gifts for friends, neighbors, or family!
Talk to you soon!
